Now MAS Presents a New Series: The Road to Resilience

New York City: Sink or Swim (NYC SoS) Principles and Priorities for Waterfront Restoration in a Post-Sandy Era Thursday, December 13, 2012 9:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m.
Location: Museum of Jewish Heritage (36 Battery Place, Lower Manhattan)

Registration: FREE registration via MAS website Please contact Joel Kolkmann with any questions.

Sink or Swim (SoS) will define principles and identify priorities for long-term investments in infrastructure necessary to adapt to the increased risks posed by sea level rise and other climate change impacts in the New York metropolitan region. SoS provides an opportunity to reflect on the delicate balance of managing the immediate needs of community rebuilding in the face of Hurricane Sandy and the long-term trade-offs of developing climate adaptive infrastructure. SoS hopes to inform, empower and inspire communities and decision-makers to reach a consensus about coastal reconstruction that is both holistic over the long-term and feasible in the short-term.

JUST ANNOUNCED: Opening Keynote from Hon. Shaun Donovan, United States Secretary of Housing and Urban Development

Join the conversation to help build a city that is socially, economically, culturally and environmentally resilient — and livable — for all New Yorkers!
