PAPER | The Case for Cultivating Community Resilience

Publications, Cities Deepening Community

Communities today are shaped and impacted by a myriad of complex issues – the effects of climate change, deteriorating infrastructure, an aging population, growing debt levels at the household, government and corporate levels, rising inequality, and growing rates of loneliness and isolation in people of all ages.

Sylvia Cheuy explores the concept of community resilience - what it is and why it matters.
