For the last three years, the cities in the URBACT Resilient Europe network worked together to learn and share experiences with the aim to foster resilience and sustainability. In this video participants reflect on the results of their experiments.
Urban Resilience is the capacity of urban systems, communities, individuals, organisations and businesses to recover or maintain their function and thrive in the aftermath of a shock or stress – regardless its impact, frequency, or magnitude. Becoming more resilient means that a city strives to enhance its ability to bounce back and grow stronger and better in the face of the chronic stresses and acute shocks. As such, city resilience is a continuous challenge for individuals, communities, institutions, business and infrastructure to address current trends and future transitions. In the Resilient Europe project, the challenges and opportunities of achieving resilience in and of our cities were explored.
The cities of Rotterdam, Glasgow, Antwerp, Bristol, Potenza, Ioannina, Thessaloniki, Burgas – Katowice, Malmö, Vejle. were partnering to learn from each other, share experiences and to apply the lessons from the innovative governance approach of Transition Management. In this video, produced by the cooperating partners to show the impact of their projects and to promote urban resilience within your organisation and your local network, local resilience workers from Rotterdam, Glasgow and Thessaloniki share their experiences.
