Resilient Urban Landscape
The continuous impact of climate change and the crisis of biodiversity loss have forced global cities to rethink how to build more adaptable and resilient green infrastructure. The core idea of resilient city spatial development is to use multiple-scale planning and design approaches to enhance the stability of urban ecosystems, to promote citizens’ health and well-being, to increase wildlife habitats, and to resist unexpected impinges on the urban environment. Regional scale ecological space planning is as important as plant configuration within private gardens. Resilient urban landscape requires multiple perspective considerations, such as to enroll advanced technologies for spatial identification, evaluation, simulation and management, as well as human and artistic factors in sustaining social cohesion. This webinar is therefore intended to explore the role of spatial planning and design to establish urban open space with climate adaptability, rainwater infiltration and accumulation, and historical and cultural characteristics. Through sharing the research and practical experience in the United States, Australia and China, it will discuss the understanding of respecting nature, humanistic care, technological innovation and artistic creativity in the process of developing resilient cities.

The event is held in celebration of the 126th anniversary of Shanghai Jiao Tong University, as well as a member of APRU. It is intended to align with universities, professional associations and practices to call for global attention to environmental issues such as climate change, biodiversity loss may bring significant influences on urban ecological civilization, and suggests to seek innovative solutions with international perspective and local characteristics through international cooperation and communication.
