We’re working at a leadership level to unlock the opportunity of using engineers as a driving positive force for impact. The potential of post-Covid economic stimuli requires us to ensure that we are picking the right infrastructure projects to fund and then designing and building them with resilience in mind from the outset.
Seth Schultz, Executive Director, The Resilience Shift, will be moderating and presenting the Virtual EarthX – National Geographic Resilient Cities Conference live-streamed session on Building Climate Resilience in Megacities, on Friday 24 April 12-1pm EST.
“One of the reasons that I remain optimistic after working in this space for so long, with all the challenges that we’ve had around climate change and more, is my undying confidence in humans. We’re the most creative and adaptable species on the planet.”
Seth Schultz will lead the drive to accelerate a global shift to more resilient critical infrastructure. See news release and media contact to share.
