ULI’s Urban Resilience Program is hosting its 2nd annual Resilience Summit, following last year’s engaging and action-provoking one-day event. This exclusive event which will take place virtually on December 2nd, 2020 will unpack the new realities of resilience during a pandemic, while examining the ways in which industry leaders can make informed decisions to further protect communities and investments from future climate risks.
As climate change leads to more frequent and intense weather events, as well as chronic risks like sea level rise, extreme heat, and drought, resilience has become an increasingly important issue for real estate development and land use professionals to understand and address. In 2020, the topic has become more urgent given the compounded challenges of COVID-19, and increased recognition of the role of resilience in advancing environmental and racial justice.
Key content themes for this year’s Summit will include: climate change and real estate investment, the intersection of resilience and public health during a pandemic, equitable resilience strategies for resilience planning and more.
The Resilience Summit will mark the 6-year anniversary of the establishment of ULI’s Urban Resilience Program and its first convening on the topic, the Building the Resilient City conference, held in San Francisco in 2014. It will also build upon the 2019 Resilience Summit to bring together private and public sector leaders and subject matter experts who will reflect on the progress and successes within the field over the past 6 years.
Participants will have the opportunity to:
- Learn from cutting edge research on climate risk and resilience in the real estate industry
- Engage with both key leaders and “doers” from across the real estate value chain to learn new strategies to assess climate risk
- Have meaningful and collaborative conversations with industry leaders to better understand the impacts of climate risks on communities.
Join us for our 2nd annual Resilience Summit on December 2nd.
