In May, I blogged about my attendance at the Resilience by Design event at Rock Wall Winery in Alameda:
The other day I got a follow-up email that I am happy to share:
Happy New Year from Resilient by Design!
We are excited to report that in the six months since the Resilient by Design | Bay Area Challenge wrapped up, great progress has been made in taking the next steps toward a more resilient Bay Area. We began 2018 by launching the intensive Collaborative Design Phase of the Bay Area Challenge — design teams, community partners, and local government officials worked tirelessly for months to bring about nine innovative visions for resilience in the Bay Area — unveiled at the Resilient Bay Summit in May. Since the Challenge ended, participants have continued working with local government officials, community members, and advocates to move the visions forward and make sure that these communities are more prepared to withstand climate-related risks in the future.

Autodesk has always been an automation company, and today more than ever that means helping people make more things, better things, with less; more and better in terms of increasing efficiency, performance, quality, and innovation; less in terms of time, resources, and negative impacts (e.g., social, environmental). The Resilient by Design teams are the very definition of people doing more and better with less negative consequences to people and the environment.
Resilience is alive in the lab.
