About

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:

…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?
