The Rush to Resilience: Building Greener & Stronger Communities in the Face of a Changing Climate

The world is more interconnected, more urbanized, more complex, and yet more fragile than ever. All around the world, our cities and communities are being ravaged by the stresses of a changing climate --- hit by natural disasters and extreme weather, superstorms, tornados and floods. The cost is overwhelming. In the last decade, disasters have cost us a million lives and a trillion dollars in damages, according to UNEP. Moderated by Jay Carson, C-40 Cities Climate Leadership Group and joined by panelists Maj. Gen. Warren Edwards, Community and Regional Research Institute, Mayor Bob Dixson, Greensburg, KS and The Honorable Jon Powers, White House Council on Environmental Quality, this session explores how bold and innovative leaders are addressing the global challenge of building more resilient communities and developing future-proof solutions.
