Join community developers, designers, planners, and government officials as we explore what pathways are being taken to better address increased heating and cooling costs in extreme climate conditions, relief after natural disasters, and the impact of fires/flooding.
Presenters from the City of Philadelphia’s Office of Sustainability and Esperanza will discuss the “Beat the Heat” pilot project in Hunting Park, which began in Summer 2018. Speakers from Enterprise Community Partners will discuss their approach to, not only look at how the built environment can be resilient to natural disasters, but to also encourage developers to make design decisions that help build the social structures of their residents through uplifting cultural resilience.
We invite urban planners, project managers, developers, community groups, and any interested community members to participate. No background knowledge or skillset is required – all are welcome!
