The four CAR30 events held in April and May 2017 to celebrate CAR’s 30th Anniversary were a great success, attracting many visitors to CAR’s office and getting good press coverage.

All three Discussion Forums were fully subscribed and raised many stimulating points on the Forum topics. There was a good crowd for the party, with some familiar and some new faces – it was an informal event but we saw some business cards being exchanged.

Following the success of these four events, an additional CAR30 Discussion Forum is being planned for Autumn.

The Risk Event

From Reaction to Resilience

Cripps Auditorium

Magdalene College, Cambridge

17 November, 2017, 2:00 - 5:30 p.m. followed by drinks

Accelerating climate change and rapid urbanisation across the globe have created an imperative for resilience against natural catastrophes to be factored into urban development and management from the earliest stages of decision-making.  Is our current understanding of risk equal to the task, and how can it contribute to the mitigation of risk?

Speakers include Andrew Coburn, Cambridge Centre for Risk Studies; Matthew Free, ARUP; Christian Geiss, DLR, Germany; Luca Leone, CAR; Emily So, CAR and University of Cambridge; and Stephen Platt, CAR.
