Join the Municipal Art Society and our partners to share lessons learned from Hurricane Sandy and to cultivate ideas for becoming a more livable and resilient New York Metropolitan Area.
The event will feature keynote panels and break-out discussion groups to facilitate peer-to-peer learning among community leaders, civic officials, innovative entrepreneurs, New York residents, and urban planning and design practitioners eager to spark a conversation about how to move forward from this devastating event-and prepare for the next one. Joining us will be special guests from New Orleans who were instrumental in the local recovery efforts. Read more about it here!
