On May 19, 2016, the city of Rotterdam released its Resilience Strategy. A resilient city is a city that is able to recover quickly from an incident, crisis or setback, and to come out stronger. The Strategy is outlining its plan to use initiatives including a circular economy, a climate change panel, and resilience education to address the city’s challenges.
Moderated by Paula Verhoeven (Director Urban Development Rotterdam) the event was kicked off by mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb and included inspiring talks by Michael Berkowitz (President at 100 Resilient Cities), Arnoud Molenaar (Chief Resilient Officer Rotterdam) and George Brugmans (President IABR).
