How Global Solutions are Failing Local Communities

Local to Global | Panel

Communities around the world are being hit with ever increasing waves of storms and anthropogenic disasters. Local level systems and infrastructures are not designed to handle the level of impacts that are currently being experienced around the world. The continued inability to support many of these communities post-disaster signals the global community’s inefficiency in solving the multi-layered needs of adapting communities to our present and inevitable future.

In order for humans to not only survive, but have the potential to thrive in our new future, it is essential that we begin to address what has become obvious.

This panel will provide ample consideration on how we can organize adaptation and disaster responses that will have the power to pull humanity into a thriving future.
