The Case For Resilience

AIA Charleston

August Membership Meeting with ULI South Carolina

100 Resilient Cities defines urban resilience as “the capacity of individuals, communities, institutions, businesses, and systems within a city to survive, adapt, and grow no matter what kinds of chronic stresses and acute shocks they experience.”

Building urban resilience requires looking at a city holistically: understanding the systems that make up the city and the interdependencies and risks they may face. By strengthening the underlying fabric of a city and better understanding the potential shocks and stresses it may face, a city can improve its development trajectory and the well-being of its citizens.

Join our panel of experts as they share perspectives from diverse professional disciplines on what “Urban Resilience” means and why real estate practitioners and architects should care.

When: August 15, 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Where: SC Aquarium 100 Aquarium Wharf, Charleston SC
