Cities are complex dynamical systems, which pose extraordinary challenges to the humanity in the future. Therefore, more and more cities are committed to promote, elaborate and put into action strategies to increase urban resilience and sustainability consistent with the economic costs to provide urban quality and therefore to raise quality of life standards. This interdisciplinary course focuses on urban sustainability and urban resilience. Historically the sustainability science and resilience theory have been developed separately, though occasionally the terms have been used interchangeably. In this course, we discuss whether resilience and sustainability should be combined.
