Resilient Parks

Miami, Florida
January 16-18, 2019

As predominant land owners within communities across the nation, park and recreation agencies are on the front lines of facing climate change. From rising sea levels to strong, more frequently-occurring weather events, agencies can and should be key players in developing resiliency strategies. Using Miami-Dade County, one of the most at-risk coastal areas in the world, as both setting and example, we’ll explore the role of park and recreation agencies in maximizing the value of parks and open spaces for resilience.

Learning Objectives:

  • Attendees will interact with a panel of funders, policy experts and thought leaders
  • Through site visits, see how Miami is working to maximize the resilience value of parks and open spaces
