Dear colleagues,

We're just back from an exciting day of exchange and learning at our Stakeholder Dialogue in Ancona. It has been a thrilling event with a diverse mix of participants including city representatives from London, Venice, Burgas, Ghent and many more. We were also pleased to welcome a good mix of researchers, scientists, planners, architects and experts from institutions like the European Environment Agency and the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction.

We would like to thank everyone who attended the Stakeholder Dialogue for their interest and active participation. A special big thank you goes to the city of Ancona who has been a fantastic host! We will send you a more detailed summary on the outcomes of the event in due course.
