How do we build resilience in today’s disaster-prone cities? In this episode we’re looking at what happens after the initial shock of a natural disaster. How do people and governments come together to help rebuild from the ground up? We’re heading to New York to see how a design competition helped governments and citizens collaborate to rebuild in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. On the other side of the states, San Jose’s mayor Sam Liccardo talks us through the new Climate Corps that’s mobilising the city’s youth in the fight against climate change, The Atlantic’s Vann Newkirk shares his experience making the award-winning podcast Floodlines and we look to Australia where research into past bushfires is helping the country get smart about future threats. Plus: Toposophy’s key takeaways on building resilience and how they’ve helped put together a wildfire recovery plan to help Greece’s Evia region get back on its feet.
