Speakers include:

• Story Bellows and Jeff Friedman, Co-Directors of the Office of New Urban Mechanics

• Danielle DiLeo Kim, Director of Special Projects, Philadelphia Planning Commission; Philadelphia2035

The 2013 ResilienC Symposium aims to encourage conversation, introduce research and successful case studies and program models, and share best-practice protocols for bettering our communities and equipping them for the future. The Symposium will help individuals see what other cities and local communities are doing, identify what they themselves want for their communities, and provide ways for achieving it. What’s more, as the purpose of the Symposium is to encourage dialogue that will result in action, the event will provide the opportunity for educators, leaders and government officials to foster relationships for future collaborative efforts.
