Challenge Leadership


The Resilient by Design Challenge is led by community, industry and government leaders who are passionate about fighting climate change in the Bay Area and beyond.

 

Jury

The Resilient by Design Jury functions as an expert panel throughout the challenge process. They will provide critical input at the challenge launch and final Collaborative Design Phase. The Jury will ultimately select the participating Design Teams and judge the final designs at the conclusion of the challenge. Jury members do not have a financial interest or professional affiliation with any team who submits their qualifications.

 

Research Advisory Committee

The Research Advisory Committee will work with staff and its Executive Board to identify a diverse set of vulnerable locations around the Bay for further exploration during the challenge's Collaborative Research Phase, based on best available science and community input gathered through an open call for site ideas. These advisors will reconvene at the end of the Collaborative Design Phase to evaluate Design Teams’ three to five Design Opportunities and match them with one site to move forward in the Collaborative Design Phase. Committee members do not have a financial interest with any team who submits their qualifications.
