Design for a Changing Climate: Placemaking and Climate Resilience

Join ULI Pittsburgh for the next installment in the ULI Pittsburgh placemaking webinar series, exploring how placemaking can support climate resilience efforts.

 

As cities across the country experience more frequent and intense weather events due to climate change, creative placemaking offers opportunities to support cities’ climate resilience efforts. With concerns ranging from flooding, hurricane to extreme heat, placemaking can enhance resilience by transforming infrastructure into art, increasing community awareness of preparedness practices or enhancing local knowledge of climate risk.

 

Join ULI’s Senior Visiting Fellow for Creative Placemaking, Juanita Hardy, and Urban Resilience Vice President, Katharine Burgess for a conversation about this emerging topic. Juanita Hardy will also preview a new national ULI publication on placemaking.
