Placemaking and building resilient cities with Resilience First, online

About this event

Chaired by ICE President Rachel Skinner, this webinar explores what more can be done to ensure our towns and cities are better prepared to meet future shocks and stresses.

A community’s connection to place is at the very heart of resilience and placemaking can play a crucial role in building upon this, ensuring the place is safeguarded and prepared for possible disruptions. Placemaking is a multi-faceted approach to the planning, design and management of public spaces and town centres. There are many examples and learnings from abroad where placemaking and community engagement has helped to deliver resilient places and cities.

Produced in partnership with Resilience First, this event is part of Rachel Skinner’s Presidential Visit to the ICE London Region.

This event is free for ICE Members: please book your place through Resilience First.
