EPIC-N Training Opportunity

On 3rd May 2017, the Resilient Cities 2017 Forum will host a unique opportunity for collaborating pairs of individuals representing municipal governments and nearby universities, to receive training on the EPIC-N model.

The EPIC-N model (Educational Partnerships for Innovation in Communities Network) is a community service-based model designed to address the broad spectrum of sustainability-related information and knowledge needs of local governments and communities by systematically matching city needs with university capacity in ways that benefit all parties, with lasting and sustainable impacts for all involved. The model has thus far shown itself to be elegantly simple yet powerful and effective in practice, and seems fully customizable to local circumstances elsewhere. Based on its successes in the U.S.A., the partners are excited to promote the adoption of this model internationally, with an initial emphasis on expansion into communities within Asia, Latin America (including Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean), and Africa.

Participants of the Resilient Cities Congress have the opportunity to join this free training as an observer by selecting the dedicated box in the registration form.

Registration is subject to confirmation and will be handled on a first come first served basis with priority given to local governments and universities.

Greek Dinner Option in Town

On May 5th, participants will be given the option to dine outside the conference venue while networking and socializing with fellow participants and speakers. The Greek restaurant "Olive" in the city centre is popular among locals for its authentic Greek food and its classic yet elegant atmosphere.

Costs will be covered by the registration fee. Please note that if you register for this option, you will not receive a dinner voucher for GSI on May 5th.

Seats are limited! Please confirm your attendance by ticking the respective box in the registration form. Should you have registered before February 28th and would like to attend, please send us an email to resilient.cities(at)iclei.org
