Is Sydney ready? Working together for a resilient city

3 November 2016

Sydney has been selected to take part in 100 Resilient Cities, pioneered by the Rockefeller Foundation. The program is designed to help cities become resilient and deal with future shocks and stresses.

On Tuesday 8 November, the City hosted a meeting between mayors and general managers from across Sydney’s metropolitan councils to discuss resilience with Michael Berkowitz, President of 100 Resilient Cities and the Resilient Sydney team, led by Beck Dawson.

Later that night our CityTalks Sydney speakers discussed how we can build a stronger more resilient city. See the videos below.
