Event Description

The 1st European Summit dedicated to adaptation issues

Adapting to climate disruption is a major challenge, at the heart of local climate action. The European Green Deal has placed ecological transition at the heart of all EU policy proposals.

In this context, the Climate Chance Europe 2024 Wallonia Summit will contribute to the European work led by the Belgian Presidency on climate change adaptation, nature-based solutions and resilience. This is the very first time that an international event has been devoted to this theme.

The event is intended to be broad-based and inclusive. Faced with the consequences of climate change, which Europe as a whole is having to deal with, we need to facilitate exchanges and collaboration between companies, associations, local authorities and citizen organizations across the European Union. This dialogue will focus on the adaptation solutions put in place by all parties in this local, regional, national and European multi-stakeholder context. So, for example, the resilient reconstruction of the Vesdre Valley following the dramatic floods of 2021 could be an inspiration for other European communities faced with similar meteorological phenomena. Conferences, workshops, field visits and discussions will enable participants to benefit from the experience and expertise of other European players.

The aim of this meeting will be to produce the “Liège Declaration“, an ambitious collective roadmap that will mark a decisive milestone in the work of the Belgian Presidency of the EU Council. Key messages will be conveyed to the European institutions with a view to a renewed and strengthened European Green Pact after 2024.
