A conference can inspire and activate municipal actors to work toward a more climate adaptive city. A conference can bring up new ideas or perspectives on both the problem or its solutions. For example, in Leiden we organised a conference together with other organisations. We started with some keynote speakers outlining the whole story; after this we had two rounds of short group workshops. In the afternoon we organised four case studies.We finished the day with an informal wrap-up and networking moment.
