We were present in Lisbon from 9 to 11 of May to attend the REGILIENCE Management Board meeting hosted by Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade de Lisboa. During the meeting, the team had the opportunity to not only discuss project progress and plan the next steps, but also gain hands-on experience with some of the measures of the Lisbon Resilience Action Plan 2030. The team visited two major climate adaptation actions that are currently ongoing in the city: the construction site of the first stage of the Monsanto-Santa Apolonia tunnel, a key infrastructure in Lisbon’s Drainage General Plan (PGDL) and the Gonçalo Ribeiro Telles urban park, a key element of Lisbon’s municipal green infrastructure network.

FEDARENE opened the meeting with a session dedicated to boosting the support offered for all European and with a special focus on the REGILIENCE focus regions. It was the occasion to update our partners on the planned activities, including topics and timelines. We gathered their feedback on the first Open Training Sessions held during the last months and organised a brainstorming exercise on the grasp ideas and sharpen the offer for regions. FEDARENE will include the many pertinent ideas shared by the whole team and design many appealing activities for regional actors. More information will be shared with FEDARENE members in due time, on the community-building page, and within the REGILIENCE newsletters.
The other sessions focused on Stakeholder engagement strategies, and decision support tools for regions, and many more interesting topics. One of the highlights we would like to share is the session introducing the REGILIENCE Gender Working Group.
