What is Resilient HK?
Inspired by 100RC, Resilient HK is an initiative that brings together a coalition of innovators and corporates working together to help Hong Kong adapt, overcome and grow beyond its challenges as a resilient city. It is a space for different stakeholders to meet and collaborate in a fun, interactive and transparent setting to have productive dialogues, and an opportunity to envision solutions to the future of our beloved city.
Recurring unforeseen circumstances and global crises have challenged and strained Hong Kong’s infrastructure in relation to health & wellbeing, economy & society, infrastructure and environment. Now, we must think of ways to make our city more resilient under these difficult conditions. It is crucial for us to understand our systems fully and analyse their inherent risks. A shared goal, to pre-empt and explore innovative ways to enable systematic progress and make Hong Kong more crisis-ready.
Cities face a growing range of adversities and obstacles in the modern era. From the effects of climate change to inadequate city infrastructure to pandemics and cyber-attacks. Resilience is what helps cities survive and transform in the face of these challenges, allowing them to prepare for both the expected and the unexpected.
