How can parks, streets and open spaces in cities be designed to help communities adapt to climate change and resilience in an equitable way? What is the technical knowledge needed and how can it be shared to advance this work and build neighborhood advocacy? Built on reciprocal exchange of information and self-determination in underserved neighborhoods, public realm investments can become tools for social change.

Join Mithun partner Debra Guenther for “Public Realm and Resilience: Inspiring Accelerators” which will ground how to use climate change data and highlight risk and park management strategies. A reciprocal exchange of information with the audience in a workshop will use each participant’s experience to identify and envision potential ways to accelerate their own neighborhood projects.

Deb’s co-presenters include HR&A Advisors managing principal Connie Chung and Kathy Blaha Consulting president Kathy Blaha.
