We are very glad to announce you that together with Capacity Building International, on October 15, we will organise a half-day conference aimed at “Rethinking #Resilience”. The conference will cover three panels aimed at rethinking resilience from perspectives that have different views and usage of the buzzword "Resilience", each representing a threat NATO has to tackle in modern day operations.  

 

The conference takes notes from NATO’s 2030 Young Leaders program, and builds on CBI’s university program, NATO partnerships, Atlantic Forum’s COE Engagement Initiative, Atlantic Forum’s Autumn Conference, and ACT’s COE Director’s Conference.

 

The event will be live-streamed on our social media channels. However, as a patron of our community you will have the opportunity to participate in the exclusive Q&A session.
