Urban Resilience

With regard to political, technical and social crises, the consequences of climate change, energy transition and the drifting apart of urban societies, resilient cities show themselves to be robust, adaptable and flexible. By creating their own flow of energy and food as well as developing public transport and bicycle paths, cities become more independent and thereby resilient to unforeseen events.

Protection from flooding for areas threatened to be inundated also fits in with this concept. Support comes in the form of powerful connections in the city – the promotion of neighbourhood initiatives as well as efforts to integrate immigrants and prevent segregation enhance people’s identification with their place of residence and help the city community to grow together.
