Future Resilience in Cities

Pioneered by the Rockefeller Foundation, 100 Resilient Cities are actively planning now to become more resilient to the physical, social and economic challenges that are a growing part of the twenty-first century. These are not just the shocks – earthquakes, fires, floods – but also the stresses that weaken the fabric of a city on a day-to-day or cyclical basis: high unemployment; an overtaxed or inefficient public transportation system; endemic violence; or chronic food and water shortages. Speakers from Rotterdam (Wynand Dassen), Glasgow (Julie Robertson), Rome (Alessandro Coppola) and Bristol (Sarah Toy) talk about their resilient city plans. They are joined by Ann Cousins (Arup), who works with cities around the world on resilience projects, and Chris Dorle (Detroit Future City), who will look at the shocks and stresses that his city went through.
