Resilient by Design teams are developing innovative, community based solutions to sea level rise and severe storms in the Bay Area. Hear from three about their vision for a more resilient Bay Area: the Field Operations Team, focusing on connectivity, equity and environmental issues in the South Bay; Public Sediment, working with communities to enhance Alameda Creek; and HASSELL+, proposing corridors for regeneration and water management in South San Francisco that can act as streets of retreat in emergency. Generously sponsored by Cargill.
