Who Lives Here? Locating and Leveraging Culture to Support Community Resilience
This hands-on session will help participants to see how understanding local culture can pay tremendous dividends in community resilience. Participants are invited to consider how cultural differences can be identified quickly and leveraged to support community resilience goals. These strategies are feasible and effective, and could even reduce the costs of mitigation and recovery. The work presented here was inspired by a National Science Foundation-funded workshop where researchers and practitioners discussed the relevance of culture in disaster recovery.
