EBRD Green Cities: voices of resilience


Date: Thursday 12 May 2022

Time: 10.30 – 11.30 AM WAT / BST

Livestream: view here 

Programme: ebrd.com/am



EBRD Green Cities helps, to improve the lives of millions of people – by investments ranging from increasing access to water, to upgrading public transport and improving the sustainability of a city’s energy system.  


The event will highlight how sustainable infrastructure ensures resilience and explore how cities can learn from and support one another in times of crisis.   


Broadcasting live from several of EBRD’s Green Cities, citizens from three of these municipalities will tell their stories, reflecting on both personal and community resilience, and linking their local context to the global one. Their questions to the panel of decision makers and urban thought leaders will ask how governments can support their citizens in difficult times to create truly ‘sustainable cities’ now and in the future. 


The event is part of the EBRD Annual Meeting & Business Forum 2022, which takes place from 10 - 12 May in Marrakech, Morocco. For more information or to register to attend the event in-person please visit ebrd.com/am.
