Resilient Cities Conference

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.

London Glow Ride

Join us at the Outdoor Market area of Covent Garden Market(130 King Street) on September 30, 2017 with your Glowing bicycles! Families are welcome. Marshalling starts at 6:30 pm with the ride leaving at 7 pm. The ride will last approximately 1 hour with an leisurely 7 km ride winding thru the streets and parks of London, Ontario.

Ride ends at The Bicycle Cafe (355 Clarence St, London, ON N6A 3M4) with Ben Cowie and staff hosting.

We have purchased some additional “Glow” to aid those who spontaneously join in! Come early for best selection!

The London Bicycle Cafe is also graciously providing a Free Bike Valet during Nuit Blanche so riders can safely leave their bikes at the Cafe while they go out and explore the other parts of this London Fringe night.
