A crash course in changing the world.

Urban Resilience - IMAGINE


It's April 15, 2020. You've spent the past decade helping the city you live in, or nearest to, become more resilient. Now it's time to show the world all the amazing changes you've made.

What does your city look like at the end of 10 years of resilience development? What important new buildings, spaces, and neighborhoods exist?

For this mission, make a map of your city highlighting all of its new, resilient features in the year 2020.

You can work from a printed map -- cut it up, draw on top of it, add new labels, whatever it takes to show your future vision.

Or, make a digital map -- you can use Google maps, for example. Find out more about about how to use Google Map Maker here, or watch the video below.

Kick start your imagination:
5 green cities of the future
Resilient Cities Competition
Urban Resilience Planning for Dummies, Part 1 and Part 2

Your objective:

Create a future map of your city and share it in a blog post. Highlight its new, resilient features in the year 2020.

This objective is worth +30 vision.

In my city, we will use solar and wind energy to power EVERYTHING. There will be solar rooftops on every house and building as well as solar energy to power our cars. We will be the richest community because we wont have to power the city with companies like GRU.

Comment by Elizabeth Ordway on October 23, 2013 at 12:04am

we will actually obey our building codes so we will be safer

Comment by Eric Connor Lieberman on December 14, 2012 at 3:13am

In my city we have gone to solar energy and we have figured out how to make energy from things we use every day.

Comment by Jacob Brunson on December 14, 2012 at 2:59am
My city has a rooftop garden on every building. We have wind turbines that supplies the energy to the city and everyone is required to have a car that get 30 mpg or more.

In 2020, the world will have converted to hyrdo electricity. We will be using this to wath television, power vehicles, ect.

Comment by Olivia Koenig on December 6, 2012 at 2:17am

In 2020, Atlanta, GA will have more renewable energy sources, and we will be more conservative with our fresh water and be more savvy with the choices we make economically.

Comment by Jenny Barnes on December 3, 2012 at 9:56pm

In 2020, my city will have solar panels, rooftop gardens, and water reserves. It will also have new healthcare trainings, shelters, and run on renewable energy.

Charleston, SC is better prepared for Hurricane disasters since FEMA and local governments learned their lessons from Hurricanes Sandy in NY and Katrina in the American south east

Comment by Peter Thomas Duncan on November 30, 2012 at 3:16am
In the future,we will have a green city including solar panels on every roof, clean food and water, and care for anyone who needs it for food and health.
Comment by Martha Wilber on November 29, 2012 at 11:15pm

My city will have buildings with solar panels, gardens on roofs of houses, and the cars will run on an alternative fuel.

Comment by Ellie Addington on November 29, 2012 at 11:12pm

My city will have clean food and water. It will also have very advanced technology, but every thing will run on solar energy and other renewable sources of energy.

Comment by NaamaErez on November 29, 2012 at 10:35pm

My city will have large portions of world reasourses with an ultimate key location and the latest technology.

Comment by Camille Grout on November 29, 2012 at 9:53pm

My city will have fresh foods and water . I would like new technology advances that help people keep up with the food and water and so they know if it is healthy or not.

Comment by Joshua Bennafield on November 29, 2012 at 11:44am

My watecity will be technologically improved with new ways to communitcate and get online. It will have a easr supply fro farming, selling crops, and drinking it. The house will run off solar energy and other cheap fuels.

Comment by Sydney Koeneman on November 27, 2012 at 2:11am
Mt city will have clean energy sources and grow crops to help the enviroment. It will also have good jobs and will always be prepared for a time in need.
Comment by Hannah Rose Fountain on November 27, 2012 at 1:26am

My city will have some inner rural areas for crop crowing so that people can get fresh crops. There will me underground, watertight bunkers that can hold 5,000 people and/or animals at once. In the bunkers, which are all connected, there will also be the dried food (the kind that astronauts eat) and a way to grow food. Above ground, the multifamily houses sit low and have two layers: the outer layer, a simple wall made out of bricks, and the inner layer, the living area connected to a cellar with watertight seals for the door. Buildings that are more than 5 stories have ball bearings so that they can wave slightly in strong winds, hurricanes, or earthquakes, preventing collapses. Water sources are filtered and constantly monitored my trained personnel and their machines to prevent spills or contamination.
Around the outer edges of the city, there are three walls that stretch 300 feet up, layered with steel, iron, and rock. The doors are all 300-500 feet away from each other, and there is only one door for each wall. There are military personnel standing by to prevent invasion of any kind. In bunkers and in every region of the city, there is a contamination prevention center where people of all ages go every month to be tested for various diseases. In times of disaster, people go there once a week.
As for transportation, it is mainly made up of horses and bikes. We do not rely too much on oil/petroleum. People do not have individual houses, but large mansions where several families can live at once. Of course, they all live in their own quarters, but there are only two 'fireplaces', which are actually using heat from the sun to warm the house. In the warmer months, people use massive solar panels to power AC systems.

In 2020, my city will be improved by have high paying jobs, educated workers, equal rights, and awesome technology. My city will be ready to face anything!
Comment by CeCe Street on November 26, 2012 at 11:18pm

My city will be prepared for everything. There will be an amazing energy source that will come from a bunch of hybrid mouses running on wheels. We will educate with brain technology such as mind senders that send information telepathically.

Comment by Caroline Thomson on November 26, 2012 at 11:09pm

My city will be prepared for anything. It will have a good energy source to rely on. It will also be very well educated and prepared for any situation with drills. It will also be stylish and original. It will also be up to date on everything including technology.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More
