Building Resilience in our Cities .
Resilience and Climate Change
Resilience is our capacity to recover from shocks and stresses.
We believe there is urgent work needed to grow the resilience of our people to survive and thrive.
Predictions for climate change are increases in these shocks and stresses; including disruption to food production systems, increased fires, water shortages and rising temperatures.
In some ways Covid-19 and the lockdown has been like a dress rehearsal for climate change: shining a light on our vulnerabilities and giving us a unique window to skill up our people start to work towards the world we want to live in.
