Launch of Vejle’s Resilience Strategy

8 February 2016

Vejle has since early 2014 been investigating the man-made and natural challenges and risks it faces to ensure the city’s future resilience against risks. Its areas of particular focus are climate and flooding, co-creation, social resilience and developing a ‘smart’ city.

For the past year, Vejle’s Chief Resilience Officer, Jonas Koustrup, has worked in cooperation with the Rockefeller Foundation, Vejle’s strategy partner ARUP and all stakeholders in the city to prepare a resilience strategy. This will be presented to the City Council for approval next month.

The strategy will be launched on March 17, 2016, at the Munkebjerg Hotel. This will be attended by ambassadors, ministers and politicians from across the country, international city and municipal representatives, 100 Resilient Cities representatives and stakeholders from Vejle; businesspeople, NGOs and other organizations.

Likewise, during the week of the launch, a “Resilience Festival” will be held across the entire city with a programme of resilience-related activities and events to celebrate all things ‘resilience’.
