Oct 28 Mon, 6pm 

SPUR Oakland

Janette Kim will present The Estuary Commons, UWA’s contribution to the Resilient by Design Challenge at SPUR this October. In many communities, resilience planning is synonymous with gentrification; there’s a fear that creating a more resilient neighborhood means increasing displacement. And many of these communities are facing far more immediate dangers, such as homelessness, job scarcity and environmental issues. Yet the participation of these very communities will be critical to our success in addressing global warming. Come learn about the innovative techniques being developed to involve local residents in productive dialogue around the implications of global warming in their neighborhoods. Co-presented by ULI San Francisco. Speakers: Janette Kim / California College of the Arts, Marquita Price / East Oakland Neighborhoods Initiative, Tim Mollette-Parks / Mithun, and Brad Leibin / David Baker Architects.
