How do we reimagine communities after disaster? How do we get people home to houses and landscapes that are more climate resilient economically, socially, and environmentally?
Representatives from technology, innovation, government, land management, and innovators speak on a more resilient future, learning about actions that help reduce the destructive impact of future wildfires. In keynotes and panels, innovative leaders will share new approaches, best practices, lessons learned, and highlight the role of private and public sector innovation and technology in the space of wildfire resiliency, response and recovery.
The Wildfire Resilience Network
In this era of megafires, we need strong leaders who are ready to collaborate, innovate and share knowledge for recovery and rebuilding. Together, as a Wildfire Resilience Network, we can meet this challenge and reimagine a more resilient way of life across the American West.
