My Backup Plan Has a Backup Plan: Resilient Design Solutions.
Join Breanna Horne (Director of Resilience at STV, CHMM, ENV SP, WEDG, WELL AP, Fitwel Ambassador) and Noah Landow (Founder and CEO at Macktez) for an informal conversation between a leading Technology Solutions Firm and an expert in helping communities plan and design infrastructure such as parks, transportation, and buildings for resilience.
Breanna brings a refreshing, positive, and enthusiastic view of humanity to a field too often accused of grim, dark pessimism before something goes wrong and insufficient warnings when it does.
Join us at the Macktez office, after work, over light snacks and sips, for an exploratory conversation covering a wide range of topics from flooding, extreme heat, and severe weather. If you’ve read any Kim Stanley Robinson, especially “New York 2140,” were in NY during the 2019 (Manhattan) or 2003 (Northeastern US) blackouts, found yourself in a low area during Hurricane Sandy, you live through a need for resilience — And experienced failures and successes. The next 25 years could look many different ways, but there is little doubt that we stand to benefit from a clear-eyed look at what could happen and what the range of possible impacts could be.
