Event sponsored by the Institute for Hazard, Risk and Resilience (IHRR), Durham University. Organised by the Citizens’ Panel attached to the Centre for Social Justice and Community Action (CSJCA), Durham University.
This event follows on from a very successful Institute of Advanced Study-sponsored series of activities in 2012: ‘New storylines for living with environmental change: citizens’ perspectives’. During this series, a Citizens’ Panel was formed with the overall aim of developing an approach to public engagement with science – exploring the social and ethical implications of different emerging and potentially contested technological responses to ‘living with environmental change’. Our first event of 2013 was held on 7th March, and was entitled ‘Responsible Science and Public Engagement: A Scientific Dilemmas Café.’

When you think of resilience what is the first image that comes to mind? It could be a person, an animal, a building, a city, even an island or forest. However you think of resilience we want to hear from you. Send us some of your best photos of resilience and if we think they’re as brilliant as you do we’ll publish them in the next issue of IHRR’s magazine, Hazard Risk Resilience. We are interested in seeing resilience from a wide variety of perspectives such as science, art, nature or architecture, the possibilities are limitless. Read more
Professor Dave Petley presents how landslide hazards occur throughout the world, but especially in countries where people are most vulnerable such as China, India and Nepal. Prof Petley demonstrates the need for natural scientists, social scientists and social workers to work together to mitigate the risk of landslide hazards and increase resilience. This plenary talk was given at the 2012 Breaking the Mould Conference at Durham University.
