We invite you to join us in the re-imagination of the notion of resilience when talking about cities and discuss different socially equitable resilience plans and policies.
Resilient cities are able to withstand potential disasters, whether they are social, economic or geographical. The climate crisis, in particular, is affecting the way people live in cities more and more. It creates social injustices with the most vulnerable communities being affected the most. Some local governments in Europe address these challenges by adopting transformative policies and innovative solutions to increase the accessibility to basic needs such as health, sanitation, housing, food, transportation, and water management.
The Green European Foundation alongside the Green Thought Association, aim to be a part of the solution by organizing the webinar “Resilience in the City, How?” within the scope of the ongoing project “Cities as Places of Hope”.
