We are excited to report that we received 51 stellar applications to take part in the Resilient by Design Bay | Area Challenge from local, national and international teams comprised of climate scientists, landscape architects, artists, engineers, community members, filmmakers, students and many more. We are incredibly impressed by the applicant pool and wish to thank everyone for applying. This is going to be a very difficult decision for our Jury. Teams will be notified of their application status in early August and winning teams will be publicly announced at the start of the Collaborative Research Phase in September.
This is a great step for community resilience efforts not just in the Bay Area, but globally as well, as the Bay Area remains a beacon of hope for both climate mitigation and adaptation efforts. Governor Jerry Brown recently announced the 2018 Climate Summit in San Francisco which will take place just after Resilient by Design’s Bay Area Challenge Teams unveil their innovative design solutions in May 2018.
