Measuring What Counts for Disaster Resilience
Thursday, February 20, 2014 from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM (EST)
Why do we need to measure community resilience to disasters? What data should be gathered to help communities measure their progress? Join disaster experts Susan Cutter and Warren C. Edwards for a lively exchange about what works and does not work when measuring resilience based on their experience with communities. Then dive into the topic with other program participants and suggest ways to ensure that measuring resilience is meaningful to local communities.
This program is part of the museum's "Science Social" series, which brings together students and adults for game simulations, engaging discussions, and interactive scenarios to explore the role of resilience in our communities. Email email@example.com for "Science Social" updates.
