Community Climate Resilience Workshop
HOW CLIMATE CHANGE IMPACTS PHILADELPHIA’S NEIGHBORHOODS
May 31, 2018
9:00am – 2:00pm
Penn State at The Navy Yard
According to the City of Philadelphia’s Growing Stronger: Toward a climate-ready Philadelphia, our changing climate shows that residents and infrastructure will be negatively impacted by:
- Increased frequency and severity of heat waves
- Increased frequency and severity of storm events
- Flooding and other damage from rising sea levels
PLANNING RESILIENT COMMUNITIES
Green Building United is is excited to partner with Philadelphia Association of Community Development Corporations (PACDC) to present this Community Climate Resilience Workshop, aimed at increasing knowledge of resilience from the city scale down to the neighborhood level in Philadelphia. Experts will present information on how climate change is impacting communities, what resiliency means and looks like, and how communities can take action. Projects, policies, tools, and other cities will serve as references.
We invite urban planners, project managers, developers, community groups, and any interested community members to participate. No background knowledge or skillset is required – all are welcome!
