Description

SDG11 - Sustainable cities and communities

Wednesday 18 September

The first in our new series of knowledge and networking events based on the role of business in achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. This event focuses on the role played by business in the changes ahead for the future of cities, and takes the form of a masterclass, with two presentations, followed by an informal networking reception.

Cities are home to more than half of the world’s population, and that looks set to increase to two-thirds of the global population over the next 30 years. How should cities evolve and develop in order to achieve this Goal? What current developments are breaking new ground – and how can business play a role?

Presentation 1 – Research for cities of the future

RSM academics Dr Marcel van Oosterhout and Dr Pieter van den Berg describe their work on the RUGGEDIZED project to test, implement and accelerate the smart city model across Europe.

Presentation 2 - Resilient cities

Arnoud Molenaar, Chief Resilience Officer, City of Rotterdam

Rotterdam is known throughout the world as a city that shows vision, courage, and perseverance; as a strong, assertive, and resilient city.In order to maintain this level of resilience in the future, we will factor in the opportunities and risks of new developments. Resilience is the new robust. A resilient city is a city that is able to recover quickly from an incident, crisis or setback, and to come out stronger. To a delta and port city like Rotterdam, resilience is, therefore, of essential importance.

Arnoud Molenaar, Chief Resilience Officer, will explain everything about Resilience and show you how to get ready for the 21st century!
