Making Cities Resilient Campaign Activities
Delivered speeches on the subject of blue urbanism+regionalism for resilient communities in several colleges & universities in China since 2011. The speeches aim to raise public awareness of that disasters often not just come from a community itself but from unsound regional development that causes environmental degradation & breakdown. Investment in building "defensive"communities for resilience may not be able to keep them disaster free. Efforts shall be placed on environmental sensitive planning & development for the region overall.
