(Part 1) World Habitat Day - High-level discussion on Resilient Design for Sustainable Urbanization
In celebration of World Habitat Day 2013, cities around the world organize events addressing Sustainable Urban Mobility. As natural disasters often result from expanding settlements in areas of risk around older urban cores, an alternative is a higher density sustainable urbanism supported by urban mobility. Many cities exist in fragile ecosystems and economies that must be understood and protected if urban growth is to be sustained.

Speakers include:

H.E. John Ashe, President UN General Assembly
H.E. Ban Ki-moon, UN Secretary General
Dr. Joan Clos, Under Secretary-General and Executive Director of the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat)

Shaun Donovan, U.S. HUD Secretary & Chair, Hurricane Sandy Rebuilding Task Force

Dawn Zimmer, Mayor of Hoboken, New Jersey

Henk Ovink, Senior Advisor to Secretary Donovan & former Director General for Spatial Planning and Water Affairs,

Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Planning and other experts in resilient design from around the world.
