This is the first webinar in the "Along the Urban Path" four-part webinar series, a collaborative effort between Arizona State University (ASU) and The Security and Sustainability Forum (SSF). 

Along the Urban Path serves as a practical primer on the burgeoning topic of urban resiliency. Attendees will take home points that go beyond the vernacular to get to what “resiliency” actually means now, and what it could achieve for the future. Presenters representing different disciplines will then take participants down different avenues using three resilience mechanisms -- social, ecological, and technological – and where these avenues converge. The result will be a workable framework using S.E.T.S. (Social, Ecological, Technological Systems) that decision makers can use in planning for a more sustainable future. 

In this first webinar, panelists will introduce attendees to “urban resilience,” including insights from the practitioner perspective. 

The Panel: 

Moderator: Nancy Grimm, Senior Sustainability Scientist, Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability, ASU 

     

  • Joyce Coffee, Managing Director of the Notre Dame Global Adaptation Index (ND-GAIN) 
  • Tom Seager, Lincoln Fellow of Ethics and Sustainability, and Professor, School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment 
  • Charles Redman, Distinguished Sustainability Scientist at the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability 
  •  

As with all SFF webinars, there will be time after the panelist presentations for audience questions, and the webinars will be recorded and available in the Archives on www.ssfonling.org.

Attendees, curious minds, practitioners, and the general public are invited to dialogue about the webinars and the topic of “urban resilience” before and after the four live events on the Security & Sustainability Forum LinkedIn Group page at linkedin.com/groups/Security-Sustainability-Forum-8236511 in the designated conversation thread.

Sustainable Jersey and Clean Ocean Action have teamed up to inspire coastal towns to focus on watershed-wide water quality improvements. This webinar will review the components of the Blue Star program and discuss how you can leverage your existing Sustainable Jersey efforts and showcase your towns’ initiatives to promote healthy waters and implement environmentally sound policies and practices.

Nearly all of New Jersey's waters fail to meet the fishable, swimmable, and drinkable goals set forth in current laws and regulations. Most of the issues are a result of our everyday actions and the way we use land and water resources. That is why Sustainable Jersey and Clean Ocean Action have teamed up to inspire coastal towns to focus on watershed-wide water quality improvements.

Clean Ocean Action’s Blue Star program highlights the Sustainable Jersey actions aimed at water quality protection and supports community efforts to become a leader in environmental stewardship.

This webinar will review the components of the Blue Star program and discuss how you can leverage your existing Sustainable Jersey efforts and showcase your towns’ initiatives to promote healthy waters and implement environmentally sound policies and practices.
