The Pathways2Resilience launch event will be held on 23 November 2023. European regions and communities interested in learning more about funding services for climate resilience and successfully implementing the EU mission are invited to attend.

The event will be held in Brussels and also online, and during it, we will explore what transformative adaptation looks like in practice, from new finance models, to ecosystem engagement, to innovative policies.   

You will hear from Elina Bardram, Mission Adaptation Manager, on how regions are key in shaping our continent’s resilience, and you will meet and discuss with regional representatives among EU Mission Charter signatories and beyond including EU policymakers, national governments and climate resilience experts.  

On this day, Pathways2Resilience will also launch our first call for applicants, which will select regions and communities that will receive funding and supporting services from the programme to develop transformative strategies and action plans towards climate resilience.   

This launch event is a key moment for advancing the goals of the Mission Adaptation, and one that signals a new and collaborative pathway towards enhanced resilience in regions across Europe.  


Please note that physical places are limited: make sure to indicate your preference to attend in person, and we will confirm your spot closer to the event date.
