Content: The Shelter Academy is a week-long capacity building program that will equip participants with the knowledge, skills and know-how to respond to urban challenges related to climate change in their cities. Drawing from the workshops, case studies, fieldtrips to key sites in the Netherlands, participants will engage in a peer-to-peer learning and receive support in the formulation, development and follow-up of action plans for their respective cities. Last year, the program included the participation of senior urban leaders from 8 different countries and 3 mayors.
