The Canadian Disaster Resilience and Sustainable Reconstruction Research Alliance (Œuvre Durable for its acronym in French) and i-Rec (Information and Research for Reconstruction) organize a series of on-line debates (and competitions) in order to challenge different viewpoints and examine common controversies in the disasters, housing, urban development, and post-disaster reconstruction fields.
Our objectives are:
To provide a platform for engaged knowledge sharing among people;
To promote exchanges and collaboration between academics, practitioners, and students worldwide;
To establish a space for open dialogue to deconstruct and reconstruct meanings, concepts, and frameworks that can help reduce disasters worldwide;
To collect evidence and knowledge that can contribute to the construction of better ideas to deal with disasters, climate change, and other challenges.
