Creating Climate Safe, Inclusive, Great Places to Live
Climate change is a “threat multiplier,” bringing the worst risks to those who are already under stress. As seas rise, storms become more violent, flood risks grow, and heat waves worsen, resilience depends on the power and preparation of communities.
We’re helping communities redefine and redesign public spaces for safety in extreme weather and improved quality of life every day with citizen-led planning and design projects and implementation assistance using the new guide Resilient Places: Putting Community First by Melissa Everett and Cynthia Nikitin (2022)
In May 2022, we will invite communities to apply for integrated package of services to be delivered in the spring through fall.
