Adaptation Urbanism and Resilient Communities

May 20, 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Online

Join us for a discussion with Billy Fields and John L. Renne, the authors of "Adaptation Urbanism and Resilient Communities: Transforming Streets to Address Climate Change" (Routledge, 2021). The book uncovers the promise and tensions of a new wave of resilient communities in Europe (Copenhagen, Rotterdam, and London), and the United States (New Orleans and South Florida). The authors highlight how these communities are reinventing the role of streets and connecting public spaces in adapting to and mitigating climate change through green/blue infrastructure planning, maintaining and enhancing sustainable transportation options, and struggling to ensure equitable development for all residents. The moderator will be Dr. Karl Kim, Executive Director of the National Disaster Preparedness Training Center at the University of Hawaii.
