What will it take for humanity to create sustainable and resilient communities?
I first learned of the concept of “climate resilience” in September 2012 during an American Institute of Architects event in Manhattan.
The deadliest and most destructive hurricane in 2012, Superstorm Sandy, helped me see exactly how humanity needs to adapt to the Earth’s changing climate – and what happens if we don’t.
A Change of Direction
Inspired by this event, I established The Natural Resilience Foundation as a 501(c) (3) publish charity in 2013 to advocate for and help develop financing strategies to safeguard life, real estate and critical infrastructure from the effects of extreme weather patterns.
It will be the Millennial and Post-Millennial Generations – a span of some five decades – who will be experiencing and living in these very changed circumstances.
Creating a Legacy
By starting the conversation now, I hope to help those who will live on long after my death, to ready themselves for the effects of climate change, slow it down and develop contingency strategies such as establishing relocation cities and communities.
My keynotes and workshops can be adapted to any audience and delivered in one-hour, half-day or day formats depending on your needs.
