Join SSF and Routledge in a 90-minute webinar featuring chapter leads from Collaborating for Resilience. The panel includes cross-sectoral representatives from community groups promoting equity and diversity, private sector executives, city/state policymakers, and the military. All have gained an appreciation of how greater cooperation—and how to make it happen—can lead to climate solutions through structures that go beyond top-down government policy efforts to forge new strategies for climate survival. 

Drawn from Ann Goodman’s and Nilda Mesa’s new book, “Collaborating for Climate Resilience” (Routledge, 2021), this webinar is designed to spark participants’ thinking—and, eventually, doing–on how to deal with one of the most challenging issues of climate adaptation: collaborating better with partners from disparate fields and walks of life—from cities, states, business, academia, community-based organizations, the military and more—to create real-life solutions to climate change.By appreciating the imminent need to resolve climate crises at the ground level, diverse stakeholders engaged in collaborative efforts have forged new paths to work together through structures that go beyond top-down government policy efforts to forge new strategies for climate survival.

 1. Dr. Ann Goodman, Author and Affiliate Faculty, City University of New York’s Advanced Science Research Center, Environmental Sciences Initiative 
2. Nilda Mesa, Adjunct Director of the Urban Sustainability and Equity Planning Program of the Center for Sustainable Urban Development in the Earth Institute at Columbia University
