European Climate Change Adaptation (ECCA) 2019
28-31 May 2019, Lisbon, Portugal
Come to the only conference in Europe that brings together academia, government, business and community in a cooperative approach to improve learning and knowledge exchange in order to deliver optimal solutions.
Interaction and collaboration with the disaster risk reduction (DRR) community is a critical element in improving climate change adaptation (CCA), as the communities share similar goals and activities. Bringing the two groups together is particularly important in relation to the goals and targets of the three major international agreements: Paris, Sendai Framework for DRR and the Sustainable Development Goals.
ECCA 2019 will offer an inspiring opening plenary and a business plenary to address major challenges together with top speakers from the sector and your own choice of eight parallel sessions to delve into more specific issues.
Fundação Centro Cultural de Belém (CCB) Lisbon will host the conference indoors. After three productive days of sessions at ECCA 2019, we invite our delegates to enjoy the last day of the conference (31st May 2019) with an excursion, where you can find out more about climate change action while enjoying the sights of Lisbon and its neighboring municipalities.
Exploring Digital Social Participation for urban governance in Ghent

The session is the final event of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie project “Crowdsourcing Urban Sustainability Governance” and will be introduced by a brief presentation on the project aims, activities and results.
The focus of the session is to discuss with you collectively or in two small groups, together with the positive outcomes, also the pitfalls and threats of digital participation in the planning and managing of the city. To this end we will introduce the projects results in the form of provisional conclusions and seek for your help to further explore both the bright and the dark side of digital social participation.
We also want to collect and formulate new research questions on digital participation that Master students can discuss within the Urban Academy. Contact me if you want to get a digital “CROWD_USG project pack” which will bring you (hopefully) inspiring challenges for the collective discussion.
