“Is Community Resilience Real or Fiction”- update on 10/10

NEW:  There was no podcast or audio recording of the event last night, but Prof. Galloway was kind enough to make his slides available.  I had asked the sponsors for some record of the event and they graciously and promptly replied.
Download the slide set here.


If you live in the Washington DC area, this talk may be of interest. Dr. Galloway is a good speaker.

Wednesday, October 9, 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Is Community Resilience Real or Fiction?

Everyone has a story to tell about their experience of a natural or human-made disaster. Why do some communities bounce back and others do not? Is building community resilience possible or just wishful thinking? Mix it up with disaster expert Gerald Galloway (University of Maryland) and join a lively discussion about community resilience. No preparation or expertise required—bring your questions and ideas!

  1. Hmmm… a provocative, but somewhat silly question. Resilience is why there are 7 billion people in the world and counting. However, more people = more fragility/risk… Wish I could go and listen.
