Boosting urban resilience with city currency
Resilience Officers and other senior policy makers from six cities in the global 100 Resilient Cities network recently traveled to Tel Aviv to participate in a workshop exploring how how a city-wide digital currency can help cities become more resilient.
The Tel Aviv Foundation presented at the workshop, which included representatives from Belfast, Porto Alegre, Milan, Addis Ababa, Cape Town and Tel Aviv-Yafo. Participants learned about Israel and UK based technology company Colu, which has designed City Currency as a city-wide digital currency to motivate residents towards positive impact behaviors, including increased local spending, healthy living, recycling, civic activity and more.
This initiative is part of The Tel Aviv Foundation’s partnership with 100 Resilient Cities, powered by the Rockefeller Foundation, and its MoU with UN-Habitat on innovations in social finance.
