Resilience Symposium

Our resilient future_header

Join USGBC-Illinois and AIA Chicago for the Chicago Thrives! Resilience Symposium on April 20 from 8:00 AM – 4:30 PM  at the 1 North Wacker Conference Center in Chicago!

Resilient design is emerging as the design challenge for our age. Practitioners in the built environment must re-imagine our built infrastructure and social fabric to be adaptable to changing conditions, be they sudden abrupt changes such as natural disaster or chronic stresses such as endemic crime and poverty in addition to carbon reduction strategies.

The City of Chicago and the Great Lakes region is well positioned to not only survive but thrive through the stresses of the coming decades. We must act now to ensure a positive future for generations to come. The Chicago Thrives! Resilience Symposium will provide an opportunity for multiple disciplines in our region to meet and exchange ideas and best practices through lecture, panel discussion, and interactive workshops.
