This Conversation will begin our series on designing Resilient Communities for Baltimore. We will define how Social Resiliency is the result of several community factors working in synergy to create a healthy and resilient society that can withstand disruption. Our panelists will discuss public health, community development and involvement, and local job creation. We will demonstrate how these three components are strongest when building on the natural capacity of the neighborhood by engaging citizens to partner in the creation of their own healthy economic and physical social resiliency. As architects, designers, developers and engineers it is our ethical imperative to design communities and homes that integrate the existing social resources and infrastructures and provide healthy, low energy building options to obtain Social Resiliency in the Built Environment.
