Resilient Virginia invites you to register for the 2019 Resilient Virginia Conference, which takes place on July 18–19 at the Darden School of Business, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, Virginia.

This year’s theme, Connecting Rural and Urban Communities for a Resilient Future, highlights the roles of Virginia’s rural and urban communities in addressing challenges they face from increased disruption by extreme weather events, climate change, national security risks, and on-going concerns related to economics and community health.

The 2019 Resilient Virginia Conference brings together participants from state and local governments, local and national businesses, and representatives from higher education and community organizations to learn about a diverse array of resiliency topics, including:

  • resilient building and infrastructure design,
  • reducing emissions from the transportation sector,
  • resiliency in mitigation and emergency management planning,
  • health and equity concerns,
  • economic opportunities, and
  • the role of ecosystems and agricultural practices in mitigation.

We are pleased to highlight Janine Finnell, Executive Director of Leaders in Energy, and her initiatives in the Circular Economy area, in the morning breakout session of the Economic Initiatives to Boost Resiliency Track on July 18. She will be joined by Brandi Williams, speaking on the Charlotte, North Carolina Circular Economy Plan, and by Darden Professor Mike Lenox, speaking on the Battan Institute’s new Policy Playbook that identifies six actions needed on the national and state level to catalyze clean-tech innovation.
