Resilient by Design Challenge
Resilient by Design | Bay Area Challenge is a collaborative research and design project that brings together local residents, public officials and local, national and international experts to develop innovative solutions to the issues brought on by climate change that our region faces today.
In a yearlong challenge, teams of engineers, architects, designers and other experts will work alongside community members to identify critical areas throughout the Bay Area and propose exciting, new, community-based solutions that will strengthen our region’s resilience to sea level rise, severe storms, flooding and earthquakes.
The result will be 10 new implementable projects that offer an imaginative and collaborative approach to resilience. By seizing the critical need to address climate change as an opportunity to bring about a stronger, safer Bay, we are protecting shoreline communities and preparing for the local challenges brought on by sea level rise.
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.
