Building Resilience Workshop IV: 2013
The 2013 Building Resilience Workshop IV will take place, March 7-9, 2013 in New Orleans, LA. We will hold a kick-off social event at Mid-City Lanes Rock 'N' Bowl on Thursday, March 7 (7:30PM) and two full workshop days on March 8 & 9 at the Lindy C. Boggs International Conference Center at the University of New Orleans.
The BRW IV theme is: "Adapting to Uncertainty: Implementing Resilience in Times of Change."
This year's workshop continues the tradition of fostering peer learning, with a focus on implementable solutions. BRW IV will bring together resilience professionals, policy makers, and community members in an opening discussion on the challenges to implementing resilience measures, setting the stage for panels and keynote speakers on these considerations and how to move forward towards implementation. The workshop will explore how to make decisions that affect community safety in the face of uncertain future conditions, grounding discussions in real world applications on how best to implement, fund, and communicate these decisions.
