Preparedness, Resiliency, Sustainability: Same Thing on Different Timelines

Jeremy O’Leary

After many conversations with conservative friends and relatives, we came to the conclusion too much time is spent on motivations for doing various actions, and not on the various actions. Said another way, when thinking about the recovery phase after a large scale disaster, many of the common sustainability related activities (biking, gardening, well insulated houses, rain water catchment) can be extremely effective, if we get the design right on the front end. This presentation will walk through four of the challenges our society might be facing and the good news is the recommendations are the right answer, even if the question changes.
