From Urban Resilience to Robustness – The Dilemma

How can cities get prepared for unexpected, non-linear events and at the same time ensure high liveability for its inhabitants?

The third Urban Lunch Talks webinar addresses urban transitioning towards more liveable and sustainable cities against the backdrop of current and future environmental and socio-economic crises. While urban resilience implies more of a reactive approach and the ability to cope with and recover from crises, robustness implies proactivity and transforming challenges into innovations and advantages.

Meet with three expert panellists sharing and comparing transitioning experiences from Europe, USA and Latin America. Take part in the discussion on what urban energy and socio-economic transitioning means in practice and what role experimentation can play in times of uncertainties and lingering crises.
