Conversations About Resilience: California's Hidden Water Issues

  • Exploratorium Pier 15 The Embarcadero, San Francisco, CA 94111 (map)

We talk a lot about water…or do we? As the Resilient by Design challenge sparks innovative solutions to address sea level rise, severe storms, flooding, and earthquakes, are we adequately grappling with the many facets of water—how it moves underground unconcerned with city and county boundaries, who has enough (or too much) during cycles of scarcity and plenty, how do we translate principles into action, and what really motivates our individual decision-making? Please join us for the second “Conversations About Resilience” event this year where we explore the many complexities of living with water.
