This is the first webinar in the Along the Urban Path three-part webinar series, a collaborative effort between Arizona State University's School of Sustainability and The Security and Sustainability Forum.

Along the Urban Path serves as a practical primer on the burgeoning topic of urban resiliency. Attendees will take home points that go beyond the vernacular to get to what “resiliency” actually means now, and what it could achieve for the future. Presenters representing different disciplines will then take participants down different avenues using three resilience mechanisms -- social, ecological, and technological – and where these avenues converge. The result will be a workable framework using S.E.T.S. (Social, Ecological, Technological Systems) that decision makers can use in planning for a more sustainable future.

In this first webinar, panelists will introduce attendees to "urban resilience," including insights from the practitioner perspective.
