Resilient Sustainable Cities: A future
• 3 cities - 3 pathways to achieving resilient
sustainable cities
• Is any one pathway better?
Community specificity & scaling; depending
on need, people, environment and infrastructure
Resilient Sustainable Cities: A future
Resilient Sustainable Cities: A future
• One step
– One event – TEDx Carlton
– One workshop
– One Journal Special Issue
‘Sustainable Urbanisation: a resilient future’
Ecological Economics (2013)
– One book
• Lots of steps happening;
– TURAS; Transitioning Towards
Urban Resilience &
Sustainability in EU

Summary
Q1. What are the practices to achieve Resilient Sustainable
Cities?
• Resilient Sustainable cities are about continuous change and
improvement – not a static state!
• Outlined 7 practical ways to achieve these goals
Q2. How can we achieve Resilient Sustainable Cities?
• Outlined 3 pathways to achieve these gaols: adaptation, transition and
transformation
• Showed how in 3 case studies: Melbourne, Dublin & San Francisco
