TRANSITIONING TOWARDS URBAN RESILIENCE AND SUSTAINABILITY
“TURAS" is the acronym for the EU funded project ‘Transitioning towards Urban Resilience and Sustainability’. TURAS is also the Gaelic word for ‘journey’. From 2011 to 2016, TURAS brought 29 partners on a journey of exploration and renewal, a re-examination of how we build resilience in our cities, towns and neighbourhoods. This journey, summarised in our final video, brought together communities and neighbourhoods with academic researchers, local authorities, and SMEs to research, develop, demonstrate and disseminate strategies and scenarios to enable European cities and their rural interfaces to transition towards vitally-needed resilience.
We invite you to explore our rich catalogue of results and to build on our experience as part of your own journey towards a more resilient urban environment.
