On Tuesday, June 26th 'Resilient NYC' will bring together leaders from across the city, state, and region to deep dive prioritizing resilience into planning government systems and infrastructure. The focus: Infrastructure and Impact.

*This will be the first 'micro summit' of the Resilient NYC Series. Each event will focus on a different sub-topic related to resilience, such as 'Infrastructure and Impact.' During the event, Phase One details about the 2018 Smart Regions Conference will be revealed, and the project response teams for the 2018 Smart Infrastructure Challenge from NYC will be highlighted.

Background: In December the theme of resilience was highlighted during the Venture Smarter NYC Summit, where leaders came together to share their success stories, challenges, and opportunities to collaborate looking through the lens of smart and connected development. Speaker and guests from New York City, Jersey City, Venture Smarter, Mastercard, NYEDC, AT&T, and others contributed to a productive discussion that lead to action in a number of neighborhoods across the city. Moreover, The City of New York and New York State have been taking large strides to prioritize smart city planning that puts people first, and focuses on important topics such as privacy, cybersecurity, sustainability, and community development - all crucial elements of resilience planning.
