Join us From Prevention to Resilience Livecast Series: ‘Designing for Neighborhood Resilience’

As part of our From Prevention to Resilience project, we have organized a three-session LIVECAST series ‘Designing for Neighborhood Resilience’, where we will explore design perspectives in which social and ecological issues are addressed in an integral way.

LIVECAST series will take place at the Pakhuis de Zwijger, where various experts will join the conversation, and concrete design cases will serve as the basis for dialogue. Central questions are: how can designers create the conditions in order for neighborhood resilience to emerge? How can we include non-human residents (such as plants and animals) within our scope? And what is the value of such a ‘nature-inclusive’ perspective on neighborhood resilience?

SESSION #1: From Covid crisis to post-Covid resilience

WED 20 OCT, 18.00 | IJZAAL at PdZ and online

During this first LIVECAST session, we look for social and ecological design principles that can help us to take steps towards more resilient urban neighborhoods. We will do so by exploring the interconnectedness between social and ecological issues, thereby approaching resilience not only from a human point of view, but also including the needs and contributions of other-than-human residents in our cities. Together with researchers and experts, we discuss the challenges and opportunities of bridging and integrating these different perspectives when designing for resilient neighborhoods.
