How can we withstand and survive climate challenges?
We’re planning for a future that is facing significant and ongoing uncertainty. While human resilience remains strong, we need robust, inclusive and integrated solutions to protect people and urban environments from stressors. In this episode, we chat with Lauren Sorkin, Executive Director at the Resilient Cities Network and Kate West, Arup’s Australasia Co-Chair. Learn what resilience means, how to create a resilience plan, and how we are working together on projects worldwide to build a resilient future.
In these very uncertain times, it’s our networks that sustain us. It’s knowing that we have out there in the world other cities, other individuals, other institutions that have faced similar challenges and can help us. ”Lauren Sorkin Executive Director, Resilient Cities Network
