While global health concerns and risks have risen in the Post COVID era, methods of sustainable and resilient energy strategies are needed for making green recovery in cities to reduce CO2 emissions and environmental risks. Cities are to be designed and redeveloped for being more sustainable and resilient to meet climate, urban and societal challenges. To pursue consensus for making effective community actions to mitigate urban carbon emissions, an urban digital platform is proposed to facilitate above systems design processes from scenario making, data analytics and performance evaluation to urban design plan making. The paper designs an urban digital platform to be open in data sharing, and transparent in decisions to empower users, communities and stakeholders to co-generate common goals for zero emission urban future.
