One of the nation's foremost leaders on resilience and an Inaugural Signatory to the Resilient Communities for America campaign, Mayor Bill Finch of Bridgeport, CT will recall the city's recovery efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy and what communications strategies worked to build a stronger culture of preparedness in Bridgeport. Jonathan Koehn with City of Boulder, CO will describe that city's efforts to build support for resilience planning following the devastating flood event of September 2013. Finally, Melissa Higbee with ICLEI will relay key recommendations from the ICLEI/WWF Climate Extremes Communications Guidebook.
- WEBINAR: Utility Community Solar: Program Development & Implementation. March 12 - Virtual
Community Solar is a way for multiple individuals or households to share in the benefits of a single solar installation. The “community” element of community solar refers to both pooling of resources to develop a community-scale solar energy project and locating the solar installation in an open lot, park areas, or other shared space. Renters, condo owners, and households in multifamily buildings, homeowners with shading and other structural and/or financial constraints that prevent them from installing solar energy on their own properties are among those who can directly benefit from community solar.

The Livable Cities Forum will explore how to build healthy, sustainable, and economically resilient communities.
