In a fast-urbanizing world, the need for corporate social responsibility has never been more essential. This is where the "100 Resilient Cities" project comes into play.

Commissioned by the Rockefeller Foundation, this revolutionizing project aims at rebuilding the foundations of every global city in the developing world, more specifically within the scope of 100 potential member cities that would join forces in order to plan an elaborate restructuring of their urban strategies.
