The 2016 Living with Water Resiliency Summit focused on bringing together community members, elected officials, researchers, and practitioners to discuss and learn from one another about the impacts of the 2006 and 2011 floods, disaster preparedness, and the role the local rivers play in our day to day lives. The summit included workshops on disaster preparedness by the Red Cross, flood site visits, presentations from city officials, a panel on building resiliency at the local level, and a staged reading of an original play about the floods, based on stories from community members. The resiliency summit is just one example of ways in which we can engage the community as we work to make Binghamton a resilient and sustainable city.
