Climate-Adaptive Design: Creating Resilient Waterfronts

Thursday, January 12, 2017 at 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

How can municipalities create waterfronts that are both welcoming and resilient to climate change? This Climate Smart Communities webinar will describe how several communities along the Hudson River are working with Cornell students to develop waterfront designs that are beautiful and resilient to climate risks like flooding.

The Climate-Adaptive Design (CAD) studio is a partnership between Cornell Landscape Architecture, Cornell Water Resources Institute, and the DEC Hudson River Estuary Program. Speakers will describe how the CAD studio uses the design process to inspire new thinking and provide technical assistance at little or no cost to participating municipalities.

Please provide us with your name and community affiliation, either via email or telephone to the Office of Climate Change at climatechange@dec.ny.gov or 518-402-8448. In the event that we cancel or postpone this webinar, respondents will be notified.
