Silver Jackets webinar series begins May 8th

On May 8 at 2 pm EDT: Silver Jackets will host the first of a six part webinar series about Partnering Opportunities.
100 RESILIENT CITIES
Please join Lynn Seirup and Mariane Jang from 100 Resilient Cities (100RC) and learn how 100RC works and which cities in the United States are part of the 100RC network.

The Rockefeller Foundation pioneered 100RC to help cities worldwide build resilience to the growing physical, social and economic challenges of the 21st century.  By understanding how existing challenges are connected, and by planning not just for potential shocks—like fires, floods and earthquakes—but also for everyday stresses—such as chronic water shortages, crime, violence, economic inequality and inefficient public transportation—cities can make themselves better in both good times and bad, for all their citizens.

Cities in the 100RC network are provided with the resources necessary to develop a roadmap to resilience along four main pathways:
  1. Financial and logistical guidance for establishing an innovative new position in city government, a Chief Resilience Officer, who will lead the city’s resilience efforts
  2. Expert support for development of a robust Resilience Strategy
  3. Access to solutions, service providers, and partners from the private, public and NGO sectors who can help them develop and implement their Resilience Strategies
  4. Membership of a global network of member cities who can learn from and help each other.

Member 100RC cities in the United States total 24 and 18 of these have identified rainfall flooding or hurricanes as a potential shock.
100RC has staff and offices in New York, Mexico City, London, and Singapore to support the work in cities across regions.  Lynn Seirup and Mariane Jang play key roles on the New York staff.  Lynn is the Associate Director for City Solutions, Innovation in Urban Data and Technology.  Mariane is the Partnership Lead for Urban Planning, Mobility, and Governance.
