PNW Resilience Challenge Launches Oct 2nd

Sustainable Seattle invites you to join the Pacific Northwest Resilience Challenge, a three-year initiative aimed at accelerating the ability of our urban areas in the Puget Sound Region to respond to disruptive events. 

Our team of over 20 regional leaders have been working months to put together a program full of various ways to act together on key issues. Including:
  • Rapid Urban Growth 
  • Low Income Communities 
  • Climate Impacts 
  • Earthquakes 
  • Public Health Risks
Join the conversation at a full-day summit on October 2, 2014 at the University of Washington's HUB. Registration is now open! Mobilize with regional citizens and design solutions that will address the vulnerabilities of our growing urban communities, our infrastructure and our businesses. Learn more

A primary focus of the proposed initiative is fostering cross-sector information exchange and collaborative action toward high priority goals. We are drawing together different communities across silos, including representation from a wide range of sectors: 
  • Land use and development construction, green building
  • Regulatory, legal, political 
  • Data communications and security 
  • Finance, insurance, business 
  • Scientific, academic, engineering 
Join us and mobilize for resiliency!

Meet the Speakers
From reinsurance specialists, to scientists, urban planners and an official Executive Connector. Our speakers are all committed to working across sectors to change and adapt to the times that lie ahead.  More

Look Back at Sustainable Seattle's 2013 Conference
The challenge is an extension of last Fall's conference, Climate Change and The Bottom Line. At this year's summit, similar topics on regional economic risks will be discussed but will include a broader set of issues such as community and infrastructure risks. Read a blog recap, watch videos, or find photos of that event here.
