Futureproofing Our Cities

Thursday, Mar 14, 2013

Resilience, as a concept and term, has received a great deal of attention since Superstorm Sandy, because it addresses mitigation and adaptability, while addressing both minimizing and relief from economic and social suffering. As the functional realities of the weather impacts of accelerating climate change become more apparent, resilience increasingly seems to be an appropriate replacement concept for sustainability as an organizing principle for urban planning and growth.

Using the New York metropolitan region as a case study, the goal of the conference is to focus on the costs and benefits of remaking our urban built and natural environments into areas that can effectively confront a future of a "new normal."
