As the issues become increas­ing­ly com­plex, one of the chal­lenges of inno­va­tion lies in cre­at­ing effec­tive spaces for exchange where actors can devel­op com­mon under­stand­ings and ini­ti­ate transformations As the issues become increasingly complex, one of the challenges of innovation lies in creating effective spaces for exchange where actors can develop common understandings and initiate transformations

The direc­tor of Cité-ID, Pro­fes­sor Marie-Chris­tine Ther­rien, dis­cussed this chal­lenge at a col­lo­qui­um enti­tled Design con­stel­la­tions: large-scale inno­va­tion ecosys­tems,” held dur­ing the 31st edi­tion of the Entre­tiens Jacques Carti­er. A guest speak­er at the con­fer­ence, Pro­fes­sor Ther­rien pre­sent­ed the approach used by Cité-ID Liv­ing Lab in Urban Resilience Gov­er­nance to sup­port actors in efforts to devel­op urban resilience in Québec.

Social Cap­i­tal as a deter­mi­nant of Post-Dis­as­ter Recov­ery. How to devel­op social cap­i­tal before an event? Social Capital as a determinant of Post-Disaster Recovery. How to develop social capital before an event?

Sev­er­al stud­ies show that social cap­i­tal build before a event is a key fac­tor of recov­ery after a dis­as­ter. To bet­ter trans­fert this knowl­edge, the City-ID Liv­ing Lab orga­nized a work­shop led by a spe­cial­ist on this sub­ject, the North­east­ern University’s polit­i­cal sci­ence pro­fes­sor Daniel Aldrich, and ani­mat­ed byt Marie-Chris­tine Ther­rien, Pro­fes­sor at ENAP and Direc­tor of Cité-ID. This ini­tia­tive allowed more than 30 par­tic­i­pants from nine orga­ni­za­tions to reflect on the role of social cap­i­tal and how to devel­op it. This work­shop is part of our two projects on social cap­i­tal for youth and prepa­ra­tion for cat­a­stroph­ic events. This pro­gram is finan­cial­ly sup­port­ed by Mai­son de l’innovation sociale and the Mitacs Program....

How to devel­op urban resilience? Marie-Chris­tine Ther­rien and her col­leagues pro­pose a new research agen­da and a pol­i­cy chal­lenge on urban resilience.

The research-agen­da is pub­lished in Jour­nal of Con­tin­gen­cies and Cri­sis Man­age­ment. This pub­li­ca­tion is the result of a co-con­struc­tion project between prac­ti­tion­ers and researchers fund­ed by the Social Sci­ences and Human­i­ties Research Coun­cil of Cana­da (SSHRC)....
