Concrete Joint Sustainability Initiative

An informative one-day workshop to integrate resilience planning into essential services and infrastructure needs.

Background

Over the past few decades, there was an exponential increase in human and material losses from disaster events. 2011 was a record-setting year for loss of life and property in virtually every part of the county and 2012 has already produced another set of tragic, record-setting convective storms and wildfires. While the green building movement has traditionally focused on the environmental aspects of buildings, communities are now addressing the need for resilience while rebuilding to meet the challenge of the next natural or man-made disaster.
