To increase our city's resilience in order for its inhabitants to survive and thrive and for the city to successfully deliver on its potential for progress and in this way to contribute to transforming Europe into a smart, sustainable and inclusive society.
What is RESILIENT EUROPE about?
The cities in the URBACT RESILIENT EUROPE network will work together to learn and share experiences with the aim to foster resilience and sustainability. Becoming more resilient means that a city strives to enhance its ability to bounce back and grow even stronger and better in the face of the chronic stresses and acute shocks. As such, city resilience is a continuous challenge for individuals, communities, institutions, businesses and infrastructure systems to address current trends and future transitions. We will look at the challenges of achieving resilience in and of our cities in a comprehensive and holistic way.
