100 Resilient Cities Webinar
On May 8, the first of a six part Silver Jackets webinar series about partnering opportunities was held. The webinar was about the 100 RESILIENT CITIES, how it works, and which cities are participating. The 100RC initiative helps cities worldwide build resilience to the growing physical, social and economic challenges of the 21st century. By understanding how existing challenges are connected and by planning for potential natural hazards and everyday stresses, cities can make themselves better in both good times and bad for all their citizens.
Lynn Seirup and Mariane Jang from 100 Resilient Cities presented on how 100RC works and how cities are provided with the resources necessary to develop a roadmap to resilience. It is obvious that this Resilient Cities initiative clearly overlaps with goals and objectives so stated in Silver Jacket charters nationwide and thus it is important to share information.
100RC has staff and offices in New York, Mexico City, London, and Singapore to support the work in cities across regions. Lynn Seirup and Mariane Jang play key roles on the New York staff. Lynn is the Associate Director for City Solutions, Innovation in Urban Data and Technology. Mariane is the Partnership Lead for Urban Planning, Mobility, and Governance.
A copy of the presentation (pdf, 9.70 MB) is available.
