RTPI London

Resilient Cities - Monday 17 November 2014

To be held at: Arup, 8 Fitzroy Street, London, W1T 4BQ

Resilience is fundamental to good city planning. But what does resilience mean? Environmental resilience has been the top of the agenda for many places across the world where we have seen the impact of changes to our climate and the effects of major disasters. Yet contemporary urban places face a number of other challenges. These include questions of social and economic resilience, and how good planning can address these, turning them into opportunities to drive economic growth and strong and cohesive communities.

This seminar will look at how planning, in its widest sense, can generate integrated thinking to create the most resilient places: environmentally; socially; and economically.

The Panel includes: 

Nicola White - Director, Arup

Anna Strongman – Senior Projects Director, Argent LLP

Andrew Carter – Deputy Chief Executive, Centre for Cities

Tom Bridges - Chief Economic Development, Leeds City Council
