The EIB Institute, in collaboration with the Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre and the Luxembourgish Red Cross, is pleased to invite you to the second European conference on community disaster preparedness.

The conference, which includes presentations, panels and games, will take place at the European Investment Bank headquarters in Luxembourg on 26 October from 9:00 a.m. to 6.15 p.m. See the programme here.

Climate change is causing an increase in extreme weather events, including floods, wildfires and other disasters. Being prepared for these events can save lives — and it can also save other precious things like the natural environment, animals and even property. What’s more, knowing how to respond and help others when disaster strikes will boost morale in difficult times, both during an event and in its aftermath.
