Street Plans has joined 100 Resilient Cities as a partner to provide “Tactical Resilience” workshops to 100RC members to help implement cities’ long-term resilience strategies. The workshops will be half or full-day “pop-up” sessions, where stakeholders and members of the public will experience what it means for their city to build resilience through low-cost, temporary changes to the built environment– the space in which people live and work on a day-to-day basis.
The demonstrations will be developed around a range of resilience priorities, and may include the programming of unused space, demonstration of water management techniques, or urban mobility improvements. Residents, local businesses, and community leaders will participate in the workshops, engaging the public and key decision-makers in the process of testing, refining, and scaling demonstration projects to permanently advance city resilience.
