Episode 5: Building Resilient Cities

On our fifth episode we discuss resilient cities. In recent news we have seen how vulnerable cities can be to extreme weather events. In Europe many cities have experienced flush floods, in Canada, Japan and southern Europe they had to cope with heat waves, in the west coast of the USA it was droughts and fires while in Greece, Algeria and Lebanon they had to face wildfires.

These extreme weather events have threatened lives and the livelihood of many citizens. The IPCC report that came out this month highlights the dire consequences that cities may face due to extreme weather event fuelled by climate Change.

With our panel we discuss what are the key factors of resilient cities, how can cities mitigate and adapt to Climate Change and how can cities be not only resilient places but also attractive areas where people want to live.
