CREATE Resilience will be hosting two educational webinars (see flyer for full details).  The first is on January 21 and is an introduction to the U.S. Climate Resilience Toolkit and Climate Explorer with LuAnn Dahlman, 4 – 5:30 p.m. ET.  The second is on February 18, and is on the role of the American Society of Civil Engineers in Hazard Mitigation, with David Wieller, 4 – 5:30 p.m.

CREATE Resilience will host an in-person presentation also from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on March 5 with Lafayette Professor and CREATE advisor David Brandes, who will talk about flash floods, development in floodplains, and precipitation changes.

The next large public events will be creative hazard mapping + preparedness events that CREATE Resilience will host in Bangor and Easton/Wilson.  These will be held on May 7 (Easton/Wilson) and 14 (Bangor) and will invite residents to engage in a hands-on mapping activity to identify hazard spots and link mitigation strategies back to community needs.  These maps will help inform the Visions of Resilience created by the artists starting in the fall of this year.

CREATE Resilience will also be scheduling a resiliency tour in May for the students, which will feature various locations where mitigation strategies have helped alleviate hazards.  The students will research places that we can visit, but we also would love to hear any suggestions you may have and will plan to have speakers at each stop so that the students can learn more about each project.

On June 16 from 10:30 to 12:30 p.m. CREATE Resilience advisors will host an in-person meeting, during which they will engage with local municipal leaders to review the mitigation strategies they have identified in Year Two, to find out how they see these approaches as fitting their needs. CREATE Resilience will use this meeting to update the advisory team and municipal partners alike on the project’s progress and next steps, as well as plan for the discussion forums in each community.

In September, CREATE Resilience will host forums in each of their communities to conclude this year’s review of mitigation strategies.  They will seek suggestions from for speakers and content for this forum during their meeting on June 16.
