Action Agenda: Series 1
"Urban Ecology in the Face of Natural Disasters

Thanks to all who attended the RWA Resiliency Workshop focused on Urban Ecology in the Face of Natural Disasters this past Sunday, January 20th in Far Rockaway. 

Led by an impressive panel of experts, this free workshop provided the Rockaway community with useful information on how to rebuild and protect our peninsula from future storms and also offered a public forum in which to connect and discuss how our community can work together to put plans in action. 

Special thanks to our guest speakers: Dr. Klaus Jacob of Columbia University's Earth Institute, Jennifer Boldstad and Walter Meyer of Local Office Landscape Architecture, Arjan Braamskamp of the Consulate General of the Netherlands and Ron Shiffman from the Pratt Center for Community Development.

We hope to continue to foster a dialogue about environmental resiliency within the Rockaway community and beyond. Join us for upcoming events and programs by signing up for our mailing list at www.rwalliance.org or joining us on Facebook.
