This event is part of the Institute for Public Knowledge's Public Forum Series on Sandy, Climate Change and the Future of New York City, organized with the Marron Institute on Cities and the Urban Environment.
This Public Forum will address Infrastructure. Changes in climate an an increase in extreme weather events demand that we reimagine our cities, and the infrastructure that makes them inhabitable, efficient, and desirable places to live. The vast majority of large cities are on coastal waterways that will be directly impacted by rising sea levels--what challenges and opportunities does this offer planners, architects, engineers, and communities? How can we rethink the way energy is distributed and used? What forms of transit are viable? And how should we organize our supply chains for food and other goods?
