On December 16 and 17, 2019, regional leaders in design, government, development, and community engagement gathered for a design-thinking workshop to help create tools and solutions that better advance climate-adaptive design. Stay tuned for an upcoming article summarizing the ideas that emerged from this convening.
Workshop participants created the following questions to guide the discussion:
How might we...
…hold space for creativity and experimentation within governmanet climate work?
…create a sense of “we’re all in this together” across municipal lines to get things done?
…motivate people to action without having to personally experience a climate crisis?
…create quick wins to keep people engaged with projects/timelines that span years?
…build meaning, active, on-going partnership with marginalized people on technical, bureaucratic projects?
