Workshop “Shaping Future Fire-Resilient Landscapes and Communities in Portugal”

May 23 - May 26

CoLAB ForestWISE, in collaboration with the Centre for Forestry Studies (CEF), is hosting the workshop “Shaping Future Fire-Resilient Landscapes and Communities in Portugal” on 23 May 2024 at 9:00 am. This initiative aims to discuss the innovations, challenges and significant advances made during the 30 months of FIRE-RES project.

The workshop will feature various national experts and researchers from this European project, who will present interesting topics such as the current challenges in managing rural fire resilience, the management of fire-resistant landscapes, success stories in fire resilience, the adoption of innovation for resilient landscapes and strategic risk communication to empower communities.

Structured into two panels and a round table discussion, the workshop will also delve into the impact of projects funded by the European Union, particularly regarding community involvement in pilot areas and Living Laboratories, highlighting their benefits. To conclude the event there will be a session on empowering communities and territories, giving voice to some of the FIRE-RES, ResAlliance and RESIST project’ stakeholders with input from the audience.

The workshop “Shaping Future Fire-Resilient Landscapes and Communities in Portugal” is part of the programme of the XVIII International Seminars on the Overarching Issues of the European Area, which will be held in Porto from 23 to 26 May 2024, at the Faculdade de Letras of the University of Porto. This event is under the High Sponsorship of the President of the Portuguese Republic, Professor Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, and of the European Parliament, represented by President Roberta Metsola.
