Apr 15, 2018Resilience and social capital : youth
Citizens play a central role in the resilience of a city. Whereas work on resilience development is often carried out with the working-age population, kids and teenagers represent an often-overlooked means of reaching the population (i.e. their parents and grandparents), as well as cultivating their own engagement as citizens.
Apr 15, 2018Resilience and social capital : preparation for catastrophic events
An important aspect of de development of urban resilience is social capital, which represents the collection of social resources available in a community of citizens. This includes social contacts, community belonging, etc. Social capital enables constructive population response to unexpected events, reducing the weight borne by the State, and speeds recovery. While social capital relies essentially on interpersonal relations, the State can play a role in fostering it.
