European Civil Protection Forum 2018

The 6th European Civil Protection Forum, organised under the central theme of "Civil Protection in a Changing Risk Landscape", took place on 5 and 6 March 2018 in Brussels. The event gathered 900 representatives from the European civil protection community, countries of the European Neighbourhood, first-line responders, academia, international organisations, NGOs, and European institutions to discuss the current developments in the Union Civil Protection Mechanism framework and put forward new ideas for tackling common challenges.

The European Civil Protection Forum 2018 developed on four strategic pillars:

  1. Strengthening Preparedness
  2. Simplifying Response
  3. Scaling up Prevention
  4. Fostering Resilience in Europe's Neighbourhood

The web streamed sessions will be available on this website shortly.
