The research project ‘From Prevention to Resilience’ explores how public space and civic engagement can contribute to more resilient urban
neighborhoods. In this first webinar, we present and discuss one central outcome of this project: a framework that challenges and enables urban
designers to not only contribute to more resilient human communities, but also non-human communities. The framework proposes three qualities
for designers to pursue — i.e., agency, connectedness, and diversity — and provides various strategies and examples on how to do so. The
framework was applied in three design cases that took place in Amsterdam neighborhoods, in collaboration with design professionals and social
housing organizations. What value was created by integrating human and non-human perspectives? What obstacles and challenges emerged
while doing so? And what lessons were learned that can inform future design practices for more resilient neighborhoods? In this webinar, three
design researchers address these questions by presenting and discussing their experiences and findings from the design cases.
