Resilient Communities DeepThink Tank Conference on Community Writing 2015
The Resilient Communities Deep Think Tank will invite participants to deeply consider the relationship between infrastructure and the varieties of resilience in their home places and in the City of Boulder. By working our way together through the Boulder Creek watershed, the group will explore the questions, challenges, and possibilities that emerge from traveling off campus and engaging with the buildings, natural features, and bodies in the places beyond. Through brief presentations on campus, a peripatetic break-out session featuring a 20 minute walk down to Boulder Creek, and small and large group discussions with conference participants and representatives from the City on the recently flooded riverbanks, participants will explore and expand on understandings and practices for building resilient communities through university engagement.
Facilitators: John Ackerman, University of Colorado Boulder David Driskell, Executive Director of Community Planning and Sustainability, City of Boulder Caroline Gottschalk Druschke, University of Rhode Island Bridie McGreavy, University of Maine Derek Owens, St. John's University
