R2.1: MAPPING THE ART & SCIENCE of URBAN RESILIENCE
R2.1 is a multi-media and publishing company for the 21st century specialising in urban resilience industry,
knowledge transfer, the art and science of influence, content curation – mapping - case-study methodology.

“The 21st century society is becoming increasingly vulnerable as a result of growing socio-economic inequalities, technological complexities, and transboundary interdependencies. On the one hand, we are witnessing the formation of a new world order, as the international balance of power is shifting from familiar agents to emerging markets. On the other hand, we are faced with unprecedented risks exacerbated by, among other things, globalization; climate change; financial volatility; the rise of nationalism; scarcity of resources; distorted demographics; proxy wars; unstable economic patterns; an increasing number of ‘failed states; and cultural-religious tensions.

We are not necessarily living in a Risky World, as much as we are facing the World at Risk!

As a result, we are faced with a ‘perfect-Crisis-storm;’ one that can easily cross geographical, jump functional and transcend traditional time boundaries. While, it is this particular risk-distribution in time, scale and scope, and not the GDP or wealth that will determine social and power relations around the world, it remains unclear as to who should be in charge when a transboundary crisis occurs.”

Miran Norderland, founder of R2.1


R2.1 is in a unique position to bridge the current gap between the need to address the causes and consequences of the 21st century Risk-Society and the ability to document, content-curate, map-out and communicate solutions in a form of real-time knowledge transfer.

We work with clients and promote our own trademark projects relating to global-regional-local: events, legacies, issues, trends, reports, anniversaries, crisis, negotiations, culture of remembrance, concepts, policies, impacts, individual & collective experiences, campaigns, public diplomacy, country-branding and city resilience...
