CALL FOR PAPERS | Resilient Cities for Human Flourishing: Governing the Asia-Pacific Urban Transition in the Anthropocene
September 30, 2016
The purpose of this multidisciplinary workshop is to explore innovations in governance aimed at building urban resilience to various forms of environmental harm while protecting human flourishing through the creation of civic cultures centered on more sustainable forms of resource consumption. In framing resilience as a function of human flourishing we understand the capacity to flourish as being inexorably linked to the future viability of humans as an urban species. This necessitates a shift in thinking about what human flourishing means away from narrow economic indicators centered on consumptive patterns, and towards wider conceptions of flourishing and linked notions of human well-being that encompass our interdependencies on non-human species and wider city-environment relationships.
Workshop dates: 02 Mar 2017 – 03 Mar 2017
