Hurricane Ida’s record flooding in 2021, summer of 2023 heat records, and record for worst urban air quality in the world on June 8, 2023, these events demonstrate that climate change is on Philly’s doorstep, and we must respond. What is Philadelphia doing to address the effects of climate change from the parcel, project, and regional scale while addressing historic environmental injustices?
Join AIA Philadelphia and ULI Philadelphia to hear about the creative ways in which our local leaders are responding with solutions that will work in our specific context.
The Urban Resilience Forum will be a half-day program with three sessions featuring guest speakers presenting case studies, moderated conversations, and audience Q&A. Following the program, continue the conversation over a networking happy hour.
Learn about Philadelphia Water Department (PWD), Trust for Public Land (TPL), and Patterson Elementary School’s collaboration to develop a storm water solution that also provides environmental justice and educational opportunities. These projects are featured in Alison Sant's book From the Ground Up: Local Efforts to Create Resilient Cities. Alison will be moderating the panel.
Hear how commercial property owners are making investments at key moments in a building’s lifecycle to improve environmental efficiencies and drive higher returns.
Hear how local government, news outlets, state representatives, community organizers, and infrastructure design firms might approach opportunities to balance regional needs to move people and goods, improve safety, enhance neighborhoods, and decarbonize the built and transportation environment.
Panel 1: Eco-Inclusivity: Ensuring Green Stormwater Practices Benefit All Communities
The City of Philadelphia has deployed "Green Cities, Clean Waters" which looks at green stormwater infrastructure (GSI) as a means of not just infiltrating storm water, but also improving environmental justice and providing more green spaces for communities. We will look at a case study of a school yard GSI strategy.
