Barcelona Resilience Week is a common space bringing together all partners and stakeholders working on resilience with a strong focus on how to advance awareness and knowledge to action.
With parallel events taking place in Barcelona that same week (Smart City Expo World Congress, C40 Regional Meeting, among others) Barcelona Resilience Week will showcase initiatives from across the world that are making our cities more resilient and strengthening the development agendas.
UCLG will participate in the meeting "City perspectives on resilience: Challengues, Opportunities, and practice, convened by UCLG and UN Habitat" on Wednesday 14th November at UCLG Headquarters. This meeting will be an opportunity to share ideas to achieve the global agendas and to exchangue voices and experiences between local governments and transform the capacity to influence, implement and sustain sustainable and resilient urban growth and flag shortcomings or gaps to be filled.
This event will gather key international actors, together with city representatives, governments, NGOs and innovators to share tried and tested approaches to addressing urban challenges and implementing the Sustainable Development Goals and the Global Agendas.
