How many of us were affected by Sandy? Are we at risk of harm from severe weather in the future? This is the 2nd meeting in the MAS Road to Resilience series. Let's go to add our voices to the discussion of how to live in better harmony with natural forces.
From the Municipal Art Society:
"MAS will continue their Road to Resilience series with a special program, Charting the Road to Resilience: From the Ground Up. Join us as we bring together community leaders, civic officials, innovative entrepreneurs, New York & New Jersey residents, and urban practitioners to spark a conversation about how the New York metropolitan area can move forward from Hurricane Sandy into becoming a more resilient place to live. Our partner, The New School, will host this self-organizing convening that will delve into a number of resilience related issues including:
- Neighborhood Preservation
- Small Businesses and Entrepreneurship
- Strengthening Coastal Communities
- Building Cultural Resilience
- Protection through Infrastructure and Zoning
- Implications for Governance, Institutions, and Leadership
- Social Media and the Democratization of Communication
- Environmental Justice
- Shaping the Message to the State and Federal Government
We hope you can join us for one or both of these important discussions. The programs are free, but registration is required."
