Arizona State University School of Sustainability and The Security and Sustainability Forum announce Partnership Creating Urban Resilience Online Forum

As a part of SSF’s ongoing mission to inform public and private sector decision makers on climate security and sustainability topics through online educational events, the public interest organization has partnered with ASU SOS to present Along the Urban Path​, ​a practical primer on the burgeoning topic of urban resilience. The partnership will produce a program of four online events based on SSF’s successful webinars model and provide virtual dialogue opportunities for participants.

ASU School of SustainabilityAttendees will take home points that go beyond the vernacular to get to what “resilience” 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.

The first webinar from this partnership, Growing a City to Meet Current and Future Needs: ​What Led to the Urban Resilience Movement, will broadcast live on April 24th at 1:15pm EDT. Panelists will introduce attendees to “urban resilience,” including insights from the practitioner perspective. The panel, moderated by Nancy Grimm, Senior Sustainability Scientist, Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability, includes Joyce Coffee, Managing Director of the Notre Dame Global Adaptation Index, Tom Seager of the ASU School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment, and Charles Redman, Distinguished Sustainability Scientist at the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability.

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 SSF Archives. 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 in the designated thread.
