This month The Rockefeller Foundation opened registration for its 100 Resilient Cities Centennial Challenge. The foundation is encouraging city officials to register to apply to make their city more resilient. For the first time in human history, more than 50% of the global population is living in urban centers. Today, we are more vulnerable to disaster and disruption than ever before.

To prepare, we must ensure our cities are resilient and able to bounce back from future stresses and strains. For more about resilience and the future of resilient networks, take a look at these articles:
