Creating a Resilient Society

A resilient city is expected to be invulnerable to disasters and, at the same time, livable in daily lives. To achieve resilience and livability in our communities, we need not only urban physical environment but design methods to integrate academic research and knowledge with human activities and social system. As a research base, the Center for Resilient Design (CResD) elaborates resilient design method to return knowledges and information stocked in Kobe University to society for realizing disaster risk reduction. The Center builds an international network in collaboration with domestic and overseas organizations for constructing a safe and secured world. It also participates in a study unit, Multidisciplinary Integration for Resilience and Innovation (MIRAI), a Kobe University’s enhancement project for the knowledge evolution of integrating humanities and science technology.
