When & Where ?

29th and 30th May 2024 in Lille with ADU de Lille Métropole.

Find out below what your colleagues thought of the 2022 edition 

“Perfect, very good for learning from each other and exchanging ideas and habits. Very refreshing.” 

“It was an awesome idea and I found working in small groups very interesting to pinpoint issues from the different cities and to get advice from others.” 

“2 groups with around ten persons/experts = easy to discuss” 

“Great, the topics and possibility to choose in front makes that you can determine for your municipality (or organization) what you want to focus on. Speaking with people with the same interest makes the discussion interesting. ” 

“The theme of climate adaptation is big and requires a broad approach and an in-depth study. I think that a concrete case study would be effective for a study and discussion. ”

“I will be nice to further elaborate the ideas and discussions on paper, for example in workshops, sketch sessions at a location.”

“The organization was very well. The balanced schedule between presentations and discussions were interesting. The moments to meet personal gave some valuable contacts. I would suggest to keep this and strengthen it. Besides, it's interesting to work in the small group.”

“The format was good, the time spent on the discussion was also good.”
