Last week, Resilient by Design came together to champion nine newly released,  innovative solutions to address sea level rise and other climate-related flood impacts. The solutions put forward by Design Teams, community groups and Bay Area residents work to increase social resilience.

This year-long Bay Area Challenge unveiled the solutions during a two-day Summit drawing over 700 attendees, including elected officials from across the Bay Area. Together, officials and citizens, gathered to hear from local stakeholders and international experts on the importance of the continued work of resilience building, beyond the Bay Area Challenge and into the future.

At the celebration, each Design Team was awarded an Impact Recognition Award by the Resilient by Design jury, a high-profile group of international designers, ecologists, and climate experts, to honor their extraordinary achievements over the last year.
