It’s been five years since Sandy shocked NYC into taking action on climate. Now, Hurricanes Maria, Irma and Harvey, Mexican earthquakes, forest fires and long-term disruption are fresh in mind. It's time for coastal communities to work together, building skills, knowledge and connections that contribute to climate preparedness and community wellbeing.
Community visioning around the Stanton Building in Sara D Roosevelt Park on NYC's Lower East Side has led to community-engage...d prototypes for social resiliency.
