Webinar | Post-Pandemic: Building Back Resiliently

Thursday, May 21, 2020 - 9:30am to 11:00am
Online

Please join the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment for a webinar on building back resiliently after the pandemic. As state and federal governments provide trillions of dollars to aid economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, allocating funding that helps communities to prepare for and build greater resiliency to withstand future catastrophic events would be a forward-looking investment. Many communities across the U.S. and the world have already demonstrated strength and perseverance in the face of the current public health crisis, but many others are struggling to meet the challenge. Stanford faculty will join the Kresge Foundation's Jalonne L. White-Newsome for a webinar exploring how policy and decision-makers can build upon this resilience, better preparing communities to face threats posed by climate change as well as other crises. In particular, the panel will focus on issues relevant to communities who disproportionately bear the burden of these impacts, but are least resourced to deal with them.

Please note: The webinar will be hosted on Zoom. We recommend using Zoom with the Chrome web broswer to avoid connectivity issues.
