    * Be inspired by the leadership of the Mayors Adaptation Forum, where elected local decision makers gather and take a political lead in the field of climate change adaptation.

    * Gain practical knowledge with the Resilient Cities practical case studies, such as the Reality Check Workshops where selected cities can showcase their adaptation projects and win in return critical feedback from the audience.
