The City of New Westminster, SFU Urban Studies and Douglas College present Resilient Cities~Planning for Uncertainty.
COVID-19 has created both challenges and opportunities for the way we plan cities. The 2020 Declaration for Resilience in Canadian Cities states that the “COVID-19 pandemic provides a once-in-a-lifetime responsibility to accelerate the change we require in Canadian cities.” What can cities do to build resilience moving forward? Why is now ‒ a time of uncertainty ‒ the perfect time to plan for the future?
