The 4th European Civil Protection Forum offers a platform for civil protection professionals to come together and advance the debate on the EU's increasing role in disaster management – by discussing best practices, recent developments and new ideas.


This year's Forum will focus on how governments and civil society can work together to create stronger, better and more efficient disaster prevention, preparedness and response policies in the EU and beyond.


The event will be opened by José Manuel Barroso, President of the European Commission and Martin Schulz, President of the European Parliament, followed by a keynote speech by Commissioner Georgieva.
