Roundtable on Understanding Resilient and Sustainable Cities

About this Event

Resilience Cities Research

The OECD defines resilient cities as cities that have the ability to absorb, recover and prepare for future shocks (economic, environmental, social & institutional). Resilient cities promote sustainable development, well-being and inclusive growth.

Caroline Creamer and colleagues from Maynooth University provided NESC with a scoping paper on building long-term resilient and sustainable cities. Their paper identifies several significant case studies which are outlined at this event. As their work outlines, at its core, the concept of resilience is rooted in action and not just high-level principles. It has become an important goal for cities around the world—not least in response to climate change.

Purpose of Roundtable

This Roundtable provides an opportunity to share this new work and some of the innovative practices it identifies in cities on the island of Ireland, the UK and internationally. It will be an opportunity to showcase the Shared Island work and NESC’s interest in prompting exchange and in this instance putting the spotlight on the case studies of Belfast and Bristol. In addition, the experiences of Cork, Limerick and Derry will be highlighted. This event is open to Council members, interested stakeholders including key decision makers, researchers, NGOs and local authorities.
