GCVS, in partnership with Glasgow City Council, recently hosted three workshops in order to gain input into the city’s Resilience Strategy.
Resilient Glasgow is an initiative supported by the Rockefeller Foundation’s 100 Resilient Cities Network and is an attempt to build an overarching resilience strategy to ‘future-proof’ the city against the shocks and chronic stresses we may face as the 21st Century progresses.
Throughout the events, we have had lots of interesting and informative conversations with the sector, providing the team taking forward the development of the strategy with a diverse range of insights into what it would take to make the city and its citizens more resilient. Using the Glasgow Game, developed by Glasgow Centre for Population Health as a tool for discussion, gave people the opportunity to look at the issues facing Glasgow in a holistic way, generating many thoughtful conversations and useful solutions along the way.
This is an ongoing initiative in which GCVS will be involved. To aid understanding of the process so far, we have prepared a Resilient Glasgow briefing, which explains the themes and focus areas being considered in the strategy’s development.
