The CivicIxD project ‘From Prevention to Resilience‘ will be presented at the international conference ’Shaping Resilient Communities. Global perspectives towards implementation of the New Urban Agenda‘ taking place on September 17th, from 11:00-17:00 CEST, at the Italian pavilion at Venice Biennale of Architecture. The conference will also be live-streamed via Facebook.
The conference will engage eminent scholars in lectures and round table discussions on the research and practice of resilience, in its environmental, urban, social and economic meanings, and will include the participation of UN-Habitat, in order to frame the concept of resilience in the ongoing efforts regarding the implementation of the New Urban Agenda, adopted at the Habitat III conference in Quito (2016). The conference is also the opportunity to continue the discussion on the importance of public space culture in cities as a key asset for sustainable, inclusive and resilient development, in order to leave no one behind.
‘Shaping Resilient Communities’ is part of the project ‘Mapping Resilient Communities’ developed for the Italian pavilion at Venice Biennale of Architecture. It is the fourth conference of the series ‘Past Present and Future of Public Space’ promoted by City Space Architecture.
