 Day Two 30 November - 1030-1230

While many organisations are showing an interest in building city resilience to shocks and stresses, most continue to emphasise the role of physicalLF infrastructure in mitigation. While river barriers, fire walls and street bollards do much, they cannot provide long-lasting protection from a wide variety of crises. Preparing people and communities to help mitigate the risks from all kinds of shocks is also important. Communities with deeper reservoirs of social capital have been shown to have higher survival rates and faster recovery rates.

A closed session at the UK Security Expo (Olympia) on 30 November will examine what resilience means and the role of communities in providing a proactive response. A series of key-note speakers will examine what resilience in an urban setting means and how it can be made to work for everyone.

Key-note speakers have been invited from London Resilience, Rockefeller 100 Resilient Cities, London Fire Brigade, British Transport Police, and others.

The formal presentations will be followed by a workshop that will launch two novel solutions which combine technology with strategy. The workshop will address a new programme called ‘Resilience First’ and an exciting mobile platform called ‘Application for Resilient Communities’. Both the programme and app platform are designed to provide business communities in local urban areas with the information and tools to enable them to build, measure and mature resilience through collaborative engagement. The session will include live demonstrations.

‘Application for Resilience Communities’ (ARC)

‘Application for Resilience Communities’ (ARC)

ARC is an app that has been designed in conjunction with partners, namely consultants Alchemmy and designers Dogfi.sh. Both the programme and app platform are designed to provide business communities in defined urban areas with the information and tools to enable them to build and mature resilience for the greater good and success.

The overall aim of the initiative is to create a network of leaders and practitioners who can together improve micro-city resilience through innovation, integration and best practice, thereby making a city safe, secure, smart, survivable and sustainable in the face of growing challenges.
