Where are the world’s most resilient cities, and who leads them?

Date: 6 Apr 2017 12:30 pm — 2:00 pm
Speaker(s): Sarah Colenbrander; George Atalla; Belinda Hewitt; Layla McCay; Rozita Singh.
Venue: Online debate

CCCEP’s Sarah Colenbrander will feature in an online panel debate to discuss who is leading the way in building safer, more sustainable cities.

City leaders around the world are looking to make their cities more resilient: able to cope with emergencies and provide a safe, sustainable place for citizens.

That means tackling a whole host of issues, from floods or fire to corruption and unemployment. Different cities face very different challenges; but what can they each learn from one another?

The Guardian is hosting an online debate livechat, supported by EY, to examine how cities can become more resilient, and who is best-placed to lead that task.

Only a couple of score of dedicated city resilience officers exist. Who are they, and what do they do? And how do city leaders pick the people to tackle the complex issues involved in ensuring their cities are resilient? Sarah, a research fellow at the University of Leeds, will join the panel highlighting cities that are ahead on this and how they are achieving the best results.
