International online debate | « Are cities and human systems (really) becoming increasingly fragile in the face of disasters? » 🗓

Announcement :

« We invite you to participate in the debate by posting comments and voting on the motion.

Scholars and practitioners in Disaster Risk Reduction often claim that as the world urbanizes and the planet warms, more disasters occur. They argue that human progress and technological advances place ecosystems, urban systems, and humans themselves in danger.

From this perspective, human systems are increasingly fragile – and perhaps on the brink of collapse. Yet other experts argue that cities and human systems have never been stronger, and that the majority of humans are in fact becoming less vulnerable to disaster.

Thomas Fisher and Michael Mehaffy, two internationally recognized experts in matters of human progress and sustainable development, will defend each viewpoint over ten days:

  • Opening remarks – June 1, 2018
  • Rebuttal remarks – June 5, 2018
  • Closing remarks – June 11, 2018 (voting ends on June 11)

The three best comments will be awarded prizes of up to $1000! »
