Healthy habitats from the Googleplex to Silicon Valley: Designing for Ecological Resilience Across Scales

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Adaptation to climate change requires redesigning our landscapes to maximize ecosystem resilience. However, translating resiliency theory into actionable principles and plans for non-scientists remains challenging. Google’s Ecology Program and the San Francisco Estuary Institute have teamed up to build a science-based framework designed to enhance ecosystem health and resilience, guiding Google’s campus design as well as investments in the region as a whole. This session is designed to explore this approach and its application across multiple scales, with a focus on Google’s Mountain View campus and Silicon Valley as a case study.
