• 5th Viennese Talks on Resilience and Networks 13/3/2017

    The 5th Viennese Talks on Resilience and Networks with the title: “Resilience of Place: Networking in an age of division” will explore and discuss the important issues related to resilience of place, in particular, the apparent divide between urban and rural experiences and perceptions. Progress toward sustainable development requires contributions and coordination from both locales.

    - Building diverse, cross-scale community networks within sustainable places
    - Recognizing place as a resource for experimentation of responsive variety to provide solutions for ecological balance
