Community and Economic Resilience in Urban Environments (course)

Simon Fraser University
Date of Event: 
Friday, November 24, 2017 - 9:00am to 5:00pm

Contemporary cities are dealing with a dizzying array of hazards from climate change and 100-year weather events to terrorism and technological failures. Even though our ability to respond and recover is continually increasing, the demands and costs for managing shocks are increasing as well.

This course provides a foundation for understanding resilience as it pertains to cities of all sizes, using community- and economic-based lenses. It helps practitioners, planners, and organizational leaders to identify their roles in increasing resilience in their own communities and approaches to integrating ‘whole community’ participation.
