April 24, 2015 - 1:15 pm to 2:45 pm
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.
Moderator: Nancy Grimm, Senior Sustainability Scientist, Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability, ASU
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.
