Resilient Cities Conference: Preparing London for a rapidly changing future
In the context of urban environments, resilience can be defined as the capacity of individuals, neighbourhoods, businesses, institutions, and cities as a whole to bounce back and even become stronger after acute events such as hurricanes or chronic stresses such as smog.
The Resilience Cities Conference will explore how London can build adaptive capacity to weather the “storms” of this new century by inviting cutting edge thinkers from our city and beyond. Participants will be challenged to consider the changes they can initiate in their personal and social spheres of influence. We hope that the conference will mark the beginning of a long journey for London as it transforms itself into one of the most resilient and sustainable cities in Canada.
Date: Saturday November 18th 2017, 9-4pm
Location: Central Library, 251 Dundas St. London Ontario.
Time: Conference is 9-4:00pm followed by a special Pints and Politics on Resilient Cities at the Fox and Fiddle from 4:00pm onward.
