Learn About Community Resilience

The city of Ann Arbor Office of Emergency Management and The Office of Sustainability and Innovation will present a discussion focused on building a more resilient Ann Arbor and collaboratively form a vision of what a resilience network could look like in our community from 9 to 11 a.m., July 27, at Cobblestone Farm.

            Sustainability and Innovations Director Missy Stults, Ph.D., says, “In the Office of Sustainability and Innovations, we view resilience as the ability to bounce forward, not backwards. This definition acknowledges that the world is continually changing in many ways—climate change, social justice, economics and more. As such, bouncing back is not sufficient. Instead, we must build the ability of our residents, neighborhoods, ecosystems and processes to bounce forward and remain flexible.”

Admission is free. Location: 2781 Packard St., Ann Arbor. To make a reservation (required), visit For more information, visit and
