Stephen Passmore and Peter Head of The Ecological Sequestration Trust are joined by Bob Bishop of the International Centre for Earth Simulation to discuss our pioneering project creating Global to Local Scale, Human, Economic, Ecological, Systems Models for an Open Mic Session as part of the Thinkdif Disruptive Innovation Festival 2016, under the topics Systems Reset and Regenerative Cities.
We are pleased to announce the start of a new resilience.io project co-funded by the European Space Agency and in partnership with Rezatec, the leading satellite geo-analytics company. The objective will be to bring innovative Earth Observation data to support city-region resilience planning through resilience.io.
We were overwhelmed by the response we got to our resilience.io app on our recent visit to debut it in Accra (GAMA), Ghana. Thank you so much for all your kind words, encouragement and support.

My journey to provide and scale support to city regions to meet Global Goals by 2030
In 2008 I was working in Arup, heading up their global planning business with a world class team of transport, environmental, urban and policy and economics experts. Before that I had worked in infrastructure design and delivery, particularly Public Private Partnerships, around the World and I was also an adviser to the Mayor of London Ken Livingstone on his Sustainable Development Commission and so I was very aware of the challenges of achieving improved city resilience.
