Sandy+3: Building Resilient Neighborhoods

Tuesday, Oct 20, 2015

Heat waves, hurricanes, fires, floods: A growing body of research shows that when such major disasters strike, neighborhoods with strong local networks of support endure them better and recover from them faster than communities that lack a sound social infrastructure. NYC’s experience with Hurricane Sandy – where much of the worst destruction was visited on low-income and working-class coastal communities – bears that out.

Today, as the third anniversary of Sandy’s deadly landfall nears, let's ask: What’s the post-storm state of social infrastructure in the areas where the storm hit hardest? Have government agencies and philanthropies seized – or missed – chances to strengthen grassroots groups in the storm’s aftermath? And how can the on-going post-Sandy recovery do more to help local residents increase the sum of opportunity, dignity, and hope in their neighborhoods?

Join us for a panel discussion with experts in the field of neighborhood recovery and climate change, and organizers from the most affected communities, as we address these questions and more.

Sponsor: Center for NYC Affairs at the Milano School of International Affairs, Management & Urban Policy

A conversation with: Klaus Jacob, Special Research Scientist - Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory; Onleilove Alston, Executive Director - Faith in New York; Hugh Hogan, Executive Director - North Star Fund; Daniel Zarrilli, Director - Mayor’s Office of Recovery and Resiliency

Moderated by John Rudolph, Executive Director - Feet in 2 Worlds

Date: Tuesday, October 20, 9:00 - 11:00am

Location: Theresa Lang Community and Student Center, Arnold Hall, 55 West 13th Street, 2nd Floor
