The Role of Streets in Creating Resilient Cities

How can we use green infrastructure to build more resilient streetscapes? How can we reclaim urban areas, in a thoughtful, meaningful, and city-positive way? How can we develop a green workforce?

Cities face a growing range of challenges in the 21st century, from climate change, to aging infrastructure and growing inequality. In this session, hear about resilience: how cities will adapt and transform in the face of these challenges. Panelists will discuss how a range of places are integrating resilience into urban development, and how our changing climate impacts design decisions and program development.

Session Format: Visual Presentations & Moderated Q&A
