International Workshop "Urban Resilience. Resonance in the Ruhr?"

On June 26th and 27th, a second international workshop entitled Urban Resilience: Resonance in the Ruhr? will follow up on an earlier event in Vancouver (CA), to comparatively examine the relevance of urban resilience in German municipalities.

[Translate to English:] On June 26th and 27th, a  second international workshop entitled Urban Resilience: Resonance in the Ruhr? will follow up on an earlier event in Vancouver (CA), to comparatively examine the relevance of urban resilience in German municipalities. Co-organized by the Department of European Planning Cultures (EPC), the Institute of Spatial Planning (IRPUD) and Department of Geography and Urban Studies from Simon Fraser University (SFU), this workshop aims to discuss if and how approaches to urban resilience in German municipalities are defined and implemented. We will hear from scholars and authorities on initiatives in Germany and topics that range from climate change adaptation, to sustainability, and disaster risk management in local and regional contexts.

As part of this German-Canadian collaboration, Prof. Dr. Byron Miller from the University of Calgary will be featured as a guest speaker with a presentation entitled Sustainable City Betrayed? Calgary‘s Neoliberal Sustainability Politics and Its Consequences. This initiative anticipates Canada's 150th anniversary on July 1st and is a partnership event with the Association for Canadian Studies in German-speaking Countries (Gesellschaft für Kanada-Studien in den deutschsprachigen Ländern / GKS).

Take a look at the final workshop programme flyer for details about the upcoming event.
