Dear ENTO members,

We are glad to invite you to the next ENTO General Assembly which will take place from 9 to 14 October 2023, in Yerevan and Goris, in Armenia

As a continuation of the StudyLab Talks “Managing cities during crises – Ukrainian experience” organized on July 6, 2023, the theme of “Communities in conflict” will be addressed.

Indeed, many communities in Europe (and of course not only here) have been coping with the unexpected challenge of being involved in wars and conflicts. How to be resilient after a conflict? How were municipalities and local authorities able to continue to work during the conflict (management of security, refugees, food, health care, …)? These are all questions that will be addressed at our next meeting. We will also have possibility to travel outside capital Yerevan and meet communities that has experienced conflicts, have peer session and to share experiences.
