A year-long collaborative design challenge bringing together local residents, public officials and local, national and international experts to develop innovative community-based solutions that will strengthen our region’s resilience to sea level rise, severe storms, flooding and earthquakes.

It’s no secret — climate change is real, and the threats to the Bay Area must be addressed. Sea level rise affects all of us — not just our communities who have lived by our shoreline for decades and are most vulnerable — but also our roads and airports that support each of our nine counties and 101 municipalities, the major companies that serve as the backbone of our economy, and services like water treatment and more.
There’s no time to wait — it’s time to come together and begin imagining a new future for all of us.
Join the BionicTeam in partnership with the Canal Welcome Center, Shore Up Marin, Resilient Shore, Y-PLAN, and Youth-In-Arts for Flood Fair 1 on Saturday March 24th 11am-4pm at Pickleweed Park in San Rafael.
As the Bay Area Challenge comes to a close, we are excited to announce the Designing Our Future | The Resilient Bay Summit on May 18, 2018. This summit serves as a convening of regional knowledge and commitment to implementing next steps for the Resilient by Design projects and more broadly regional resilience in the Bay Area.
