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.

Strategy Sessions

This is the Carolinian Zone – unique, wild and home to one quarter of Canadians. Join us in collaborating for a Big Picture 5-year strategy to grow healthy habitat for a green future for wildlife and people.

  • How green is your future? What is your vision of a sustainable future? How does climate change fit?
  • The Big Picture is greater than the sum of our actions. How do we know we are moving in the right direction, together?
  • Measure what matters. How do you measure success?
  • Great things are happening. How are you reversing habitat loss? How is local nature helping you get climate-smart? Who are your green people?
  • The Big Picture belongs to everyone. How would you like to be connected to the Big Picture?

Our community includes conservation, community, First Nations, government, land, water, farm, health, business, cultural, urban and many other groups and individuals who care.
