Event

For municipalities climate change becomes a greater risk, every day. Some form of climate-resistant planning is needed. At the European Week of Regions and Cities 2019, CLARITY and BEACON presented solutions in adaption and mitigation to tackle climate change risks.

Their interactive session hosted almost 100 people from urban and infrastructure planning and development, municipal decision-makers, energy and climate policy

The cities Agios Dimitrios in Greece and Bottrop in Germany could not be more different for urban planners. Here a pulsating suburb of Athens with 200 days of sunshine, there a small Westphalian town in the Ruhr area. Nevertheless, Ilias Savvakis, secretary-general of Agios Dimitrios, is full of enthusiasm when he talks about joint projects in the fight against climate

CLARITY is part of this year's ECCA 2019 in Lisbon. The biennial European Climate Change Adaptation conference is convened by EU-funded projects like ours on behalf of the European Commission. The conference is organized by three European projects under the "Horizon 2020" program - Placard, Bingo, Resccue.
