Making places resilient

17th April 2012, Manchester

This course will explore the characteristics of place resilience based on CLES’ own research into resilient places and the CLES Resilience Model which provides a conceptual framework for assessment.

The course will guide delegates through the framework and look at ways it can be used to help rebalance our economies and prioritise resources in a time of austerity.

Delegates will

  • Learn about the nature of resilient places
  • Explore how current challenges and the Coalition government policy makes place resilience more important
  • Learn about the CLES place resilience concept and how it was developed
  • Understand how to apply the CLES place resilience concept in your own locality
