Mayor Bowser to Launch DC's Resilience Effort with 100 Resilient Cities

Wednesday, February 8, 2017

(WASHINGTON, DC) – On Thursday, February 9 at 2 pm, Mayor Muriel Bowser; Rashad Young, City Administrator for the Executive Office of the Mayor; Andrew Salkin, Senior Vice-President of City Solutions, 100 Resilient Cities; and District stakeholders will join 100 Resilient Cities (100RC) to launch the first year of Resilience-Agenda Setting Workshop in Washington, DC. The workshop will bring together a diverse set of stakeholders from local and federal government, public and private sector businesses, and civic community members to develop strategies to address the infrastructure, public safety, and economic challenges in the District.  

Established by The Rockefeller Foundation, 100RC helps cities around the world to become irrepressible to natural and manmade challenges that are increasing in the 21st century. In 2016, Washington, DC was selected from more than 1,000 cities around the world to become part of the 100RC network. As part of the 100RC network, the District receives technical support and resources to develop and implement strategies to solve the ongoing social, economic, and physical challenges. Workshop attendees will be joined by the Chief Resilience Officers of Boston, Massachusetts and Mexico City, Mexico along with members of the 100RC network.
