Description

Engagement by Design:
a discussion on innovative engagement tactics

Since the Hurricane Sandy Competition ended there have been almost 400 public meetings with communities to help shape the projects. Rebuild has been observing these meetings and have chosen the Best Practices of Community Engagement. This event will explore four of the best practice examples from the government and community perspectives.

Examples to be explored include: virtual reality, decoding the EIS, implementation principles and how physical spaces can invite conversations.

Speakers:
- Victoria Cerullo, CAG Co- Chair, and Pippa Brashear, Design Team Member
on Living Breakwaters and their use of virtual reality.

- Caleb Stratton, City of Hoboken
on the Hudson River project and how the CAG organized to decode the Draft Enviornmental Impact Statement (DEIS) together.

- Angela Tovar, the POINT and Louise Yeung, NYCEDC
on Hunts Point Resiliency and the implementation principles decided on by government and community.

- Carmen Nieves, CAG Member & David Kooris, State of CT
on Resilient Bridgeport and the advantages to having a physical home for the project.

Speakers subject to change.



ABOUT BEST PRACTICES OF COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT: The Rebuild by Design competition set a new standard for stakeholder engagement in the region. For affected communities the competition created an expectation that the same level of engagement would continue through implementation. In the past two and a half years, governments- with the help the implementing design teams- have used various techniques to engage the community and successfully prepare the Sandy region for a changing climate. Studying these engagement techniques during implementation has been a central tenet of Rebuild by Design’s work in the Sandy region.

As the seven funded Sandy projects are implemented, Rebuild has observed many creative community engagement strategies from the project teams and has used these examples to promote Best Practices for Elements of Engagement.
