Resilient Cities Are #Here

On 26 June we kick off the 10th anniversary edition of the Resilient Cities Congress. We’re in Bonn, celebrating ten years of resolve and resilience in the face of ever-growing threats.

Representatives of cities from around the world are already gathered here and ready for three full days of learning, collaboration and discussion.

If you can’t be here in person, you’ll be able to follow everything happening at the Congress through our daily recap emails, blog posts and on Twitter of course (#resilientcities).

The conversation is already underway.
