HOW TO RECOGNISE A RESILIENT CITY?

The resilience of a city is its capacity to respond to difficulties, emergencies, or stressful events in a positive and constructive manner.

This response should ultimately lead to a constructive recovery process involving all aspects of complexity that characterize the cities of today: cultural, social, and economic diversity, together with local cultural heritage. All this to achieve in-depth, long-term recovery of the city and all its inhabitants. Therefore, the resilience of a city is based on its capacity not to leave behind groups that are considered most at risk because of economic, social, cultural, and linguistic factors.

A resilient city draws from the strength of all its inhabitants and grows out of the differences between them. Resilient cities understand and embody diversity as layers of strength from which to draw upon, both in routine times as well as in times of need (both natural and man-made disasters).
