The call for contributions for the 2019 congress is now open and welcomes proposals for various formats, including presentations, panels, workshops, and debates. An overview of the formats is available here
A core objective of the Resilient Cities congress series is to serve as the global resilience implementation forum. To advance this goal, the special anniversary edition of Resilient Cities 2019
will focus on:
- Paving the way for resilience: research, cooperation, planning, finance and implementation;
- Advancing resilience, especially on efficient resource management, natural and cultural heritage protection and food systems;
- Innovation for resilience: digitalization, nature-based solutions, adaptive infrastructure, tinkering and blockchain;
- Building resilient societies, focusing on forced migration, resettlement, inclusion, social cohesion and citizens' voluntary emergency response.
Congress themes also include current and pressing issues such as managing climate-related health risks, leveraging social capital, and evidence-based adaptation planning. Check the detailed list of new themes here
