The Urban Resilience Talk Show – with Seth Schultz, Executive Director of the Resilient Shift
Join us for a talk with Seth Schultz – the Executive Director of the Resilient Shift – and Lead Author of the IPCC 1.5 degree report. Seth will share his insights on urban resilience, climate change and the global agenda live from his house in New York, USA. With over 20 years of experience working internationally on issues of the environment, sustainability and climate change, Seth has helped create global organizations such as the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, The Global Covenant of Mayors, The Streets for All Coalition, The Coalition for Urban Transitions and The International Coalition for Sustainable Infrastructure. Seth brings extensive knowledge on how cities work with urban resilience, but also detailed insights on the global political scene. Recently he was a senior advisor on cities and environment for Mike Bloomberg during his run for the democratic nomination. The Resilience Shift exists to inspire and empower a global community to make the world safer through resilient infrastructure. More people than ever depend on the critical infrastructure systems that provide essential energy, water, transport and communications services, and underpin food, healthcare and education. When this infrastructure fails the consequences can be catastrophic. Your hosts are as usual, Jonathan Leonardsen who is the market director for urban resilience and development at Sweco. And Lykke Leonardsen, who is the program director for green solutions at the City of Copenhagen.

Climate resilience is a challenge for our cities today, and it will remain so after COVID-19. And we would love, if you would listen in, when we talk urban resilience with the Chief Resilience Officer of Milan, Piero Pelizzaro. And hear more on: How are Milan working with resilience – before, during and after the current lockdown? How have Milans work on resilience helped them stear through the current crisis? What are Milan planning to do to accelerate urban resilience and climate adaptation after the crisis? Now is the time to stand together (2meters or 6 feet apart), and show our national leaders and our community, that the fight continues and we are on it.
