Placemaking in a Changing Climate Workshop 9/10/12

 

PLACEMAKING IN A CHANGING CLIMATE 

 

Workshop Sept. 10, 2012, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

with Phil Myrick (SVP, Project for Public Spaces), Denisha Williams (Pres., American Soc. Landscape Architects NY Chapter) and Melissa Everett, Ph.D. (ED, Sustainable Hudson Valley).  


This highly interactive day offers a framework and models for using climate adaptation as a springboard for revitalizing communities and engaging citizens.  By using Placemaking to create lively town centers and neighborhoods, we can enhance pride of place and promote local economic development while making the built environment cooler and more resilient in response to climate change.  Placemaking is a tangible, positive way to address a community’s sustainability goals.

Highlights:
Green infrastructure, stormwater management and urban landscape strategies that revitalize and protect community assets

Lighter, quicker, cheaper approaches that get things done in spite of fiscal constraints
