Event Date:  - 

The UR+BC symposium marks the first time the construction industry is playing a leadership role in bringing together builders, designers, engineers, scientists, and policy makers to tackle the challenges of hazard mitigation and increased resilience in the industrial, commercial, and institutional built environment.

Reflective of BC’s continued leadership in preparedness and response for hazards of earthquake, fire, tsunami, and flood, participants at the UR+BC_Built Environment symposium will share knowledge and perspective on how to build long-term resilience to future hazard events and the impacts of climate change.

Engineers, planners, policy-makers and emergency managers will collaborate with developers, builders, investors and insurers to find solutions and drive change. Researchers, academics and scientists will support the dialogue to help shrink the gap between science, policy, and real-world action that builds resilience.
