Event Description

A changing climate, sea level rise, drought, and a wide range of stresses in the world are conspiring to make our buildings and communities more vulnerable. This Webinar will review those vulnerabilities and introduce a wide range of resilient design strategies that can be implemented to make our buildings and communities safer, more resilient in the face of those risks, better able to bounce back from disturbances, and better adapted to climate change. The webinar will especially highlight those resilient design strategies that also contribute to sustainability—and make the point that resilience can become an important motivation for creating more sustainable buildings and communities.
