RESURBE

 
In the spotlight
 
 

RESURBE is an interdisciplinary and multi-sectorial open working platform facilitating the exchange of knowledge and dialogue between actors involved in the urban and regional transformation, including research centres, national international agencies, grassroots movements, non governmental organizations and private enterprises.

RESURBE aims to promote the systemic transition for cities based on co-evolution and social innovation, through just and inclusive participatory processes.

RESURBE program operates through an interdisciplinary and international platform, including CRPP from UN HABITAT, UNESCO, UNISDR and RECNET,  facilitating knowledge co-creation and exchange between local and regional governments, universities and research centres, international organizations and other stakeholders from private and public sectors.

RESURBE adopts a participatory community development approach, by favouring innovation of socio-ecological systems in order to reduce the vulnerability of local communities and to improve human wellbeing.

RESURBE is structured by seven thematic areas and Working Groups.

WG 1. Risk management, adaptation and resilience
WG 2. Methodologies and tools for resilience and systemic eco-innovation.
WG 3. Process design and strategic urban/regional planning.
WG 4. Intangible heritage and appropriate technologies.
WG 5. Circular economy and urban metabolism.
WG 6. Participatory processes, co-design and co-evolution.
WG 7. Climate change and healthy cities.

RESURBE, during the initial 2014-16 phase, is expecting to deliver, at least, the following basic outputs:

  • book series, one book for each working theme, summarising best practices;
  • An open database (wiki), a systematic collection of best practices on urban resilience;
  • A series of research and policy briefs, summarising key findings of the working groups;
  • A series of international conferences, aiming to expand the network and outreach;
  • A series of side events, organized within major international conferences and fora;
  • A series of television programs/talk shows to further disseminate key findings;
  • An education program, dedicated to policy makers and technical officers;
  • A series of capacity building workshops and trainings courses.

RESURBE is an open and dynamic programme that will grow and expand, following co-evolution principles, along its entire duration. New organizations and individuals are invited to join the consortium and the working groups.

RESURBE kick-off conference took place in Barcelona, at the Technical University of Catalunya, 11 and 12 November 2014; followed by conferences in Salvador de Bahia and Bogota (2015), and Mexico City (2016). Lectures can also be watched on the link:
