Creating Sustainable and Resilient Cities and Communities A summary of expert perspectives from the 2019 TD Bank Group–GlobeScan SDG Leadership Forum on Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and CommunitiesWe are very pleased to announce the launch of our report “Creating Sustainable and Resilient Cities and Communities” a summary of expert perspectives from the TD Bank Group / GlobeScan SDG Leadership Forum for Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities.

This global, online, text-based discussion explored how we can build sustainable and resilient cities and communities.

There are a number of challenges facing urban centres and a multitude of potential opportunities to overcome these challenges. Sustainable, liveable cities require a collaborative and thoughtful approach to urban design and urban living that prioritizes climate-resilient infrastructure, inclusion, and accessible urban green spaces.

Our discussion highlighted the many benefits of green infrastructure and green spaces, including climate resiliency, physical health, and social cohesion. A number of inspiring examples were shared that demonstrate how green infrastructure can meaningfully contribute to sustainable living. These shared experiences help to inspire and inform future initiatives and demonstrate the level of commitment, creativity, and innovation that are needed to help to propel these initiatives and catalyze action.
