People invited to have their say on how to ‘future-proof’ Belfast
12 Feb 2020
People from across Belfast are being asked to share their views on how to make the city more resilient.
Belfast City Council is currently consulting on its draft resilience strategy with a focus on climate, connectivity, and children and young people.
A resilient city is one that has the ability to recover quickly from shocks and stresses – those that can be planned for, like the effects of climate change, and those that are unexpected.
Council’s draft resilience strategy aims to transition Belfast to an inclusive, low-carbon, climate resilient economy within a generation.
Members of the public can have their say on the draft resilience strategy by visiting the council’s website www.belfastcity.gov.uk/resilientbelfast, or by attending one of the public information and engagement sessions that are being held across the city in February and March.
