We are very pleased to announce the 2nd Meeting of the EU Task Force for Climate Neutral and Resilient Historic Urban Districts on the 14th and 15th of December 2021.

The registration process is open in the following link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/eu-tf-meeting-for-climate-neutral-and-resilient-historic-urban-districts-tickets-215604116717

The meeting will be conducted virtually and include three sessions in three thematic areas. In each session, participants will pitch problems, opportunities, and best practices from their daily practice, as well as methods and tools (own developments as well as ones already in use) related to each thematic area through short presentations.

Based on these presentations, participants will join interactive discussions to match problems, best practices, methods, and tools with each other. Please share your feedback on each thematic area on the following miro boards before the event. The final agenda will be designed according to your input. You can participate in all or in whichever thematic area you are most interested in.

14 December

  • 10:30 -12:00 CET: The assessment, monitoring, and evaluation of risks and resilience | miro boardhere.

15 December

  • 10:00 -12:00 CET: The development of equitable solutions for and with the communities | miro board here.

The purpose of the meeting is to bring together actors from the cultural sector, the research community, and policy-makers to discuss and identify the obstacles, opportunities, best practices, and tools to render the historic urban districts, climate neutral. By doing so, the task force aims to provide support to the European authorities and decision-makers to develop common evidence-based policies, strategies, and procedures to support the adaptation of historic districts to climate change.

The EU Task Force has been established by the Horizon 2020 projects, HYPERION, ARCH & SHELTER in response to and support of the Horizon 2020 “Heritage Alive” orientation to increase resilience and sustainable reconstruction of historic areas to cope with climate change and hazard events.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the event!
