Designing City Resilience: A two day summit hosted by the RIBA

When: 16 and 17 June 2015
Where: RIBA, 66 Portland Place, London, W1B 1AD

Designing City Resilience is a two-day summit hosted by the RIBA and supported by LSE Cities and The Urban Age. The summit is designed to foster and support an international exchange of ideas, to bring world-class thinking to the current and future challenges faced by cities around the world.

This two-day summit brings together the key groups involved in the design and construction, development and infrastructure, city leadership and governance, insurance and finance, technology and communications of a city. It will provide the opportunity to share ideas and formulate strategies that will enable them to recommend and implement meaningful principles to make better cities, ones capable of coping with the stresses of mass urbanisation, climate change and unexpected shocks to the system.

LSE Cities Director Ricky Burdett will be part of the first session of the summit (09.20, Tuesday 16 June): Defining Urban Resilience, which seeks to define city resilience and explore the policy landscape, governance structures and behaviours that enable it.
