Resilience is a system’s ability to react to crises and disruptions, and return to its original state.
With regard to political, technical and social crises, the consequences of climate change, energy transition
and the aging of the urban population, resilient cities show themselves to be robust, adaptable and flexible.
By creating its own flow of energy and food as well as developing public transport and bicycle paths,
cities become more independent and thereby resilient to unforeseen events. Support comes in the form of powerful connections
in the city, both from a technical and a social point of view.
