The Resilient Bay Area Summit – Day 1

May 17 @ 9:00 am - 6:30 pm

Free

Throughout the Bay Area Challenge, proactive planning to safeguard our Bay Area community from the impacts of climate change has presented an opportunity to reimagine our relationship with the natural world and with each other. As we invest in resilience, we must seek transformational change toward true, collective, long-term prosperity.

The Resilient by Design | Bay Area Challenge has brought together teams of scientists, community members, local elected leaders, financial specialists, youth leaders and some of the world’s leading designers to translate advances in research into specific, place-based solutions to flood risk and sea level rise. These innovative ideas address long-term threats, in addition to current challenges, including the essential infrastructure needs of communities on the frontline of sea level rise.

Watch the Design Presentations via Livestream | 9:00am – 6:30pm

Each team will have 25 minutes to present followed by 15 minutes of questions from the Resilient by Design Jury. It will be live streamed via our ‪‪Youtube channel so that communities throughout the region can easily view and learn from the presentations.View the livestream here.
