Planning for Climate Change

LISTEN
This talk was recorded at the Field Lab, a temporary insallation created by the Studio for Urban Projects as Designers-In-Residence at the Exploratorium’s Bay Observatory.  The Field Lab explored the dynamics of the San Francisco Bay in a time of climate change, engaging the public in the questions shaping our region and all coastal cities. This discussion focused on how coastal cities are planning for climate change, how we understand where and how to make our cities more resilient, what opportunities we have for community engagement and better public spaces, and how these projects are permitted without disrupting longstanding conservation policies. Moderated by Alison Sant, co-founder and partner in the Studio for Urban Projects.  (Recorded at the Exploratorium Oct. 13, 2016, mp3 55:34).
