Since Hurricane Sandy hit New York City, city efforts have been focused on ensuring a Resilient New York. Leaders from the private and public sector within New York are transforming their building and planning tactics to be resilient against infrastructure vulnerability. Sandy’s ability to knock out power in lower Manhattan displayed the fragility of existing buildings and communities.
This month’s forum speakers will discuss how resiliency is tied to energy efficiency as well as what action is being taken to shape a resilient community – all sharing the goal to inform and help protect our infrastructure. This event takes place during NYC Climate Week so come join us and take part in the discussion!
