Resilience in Sandy Hook, New Jersey

In 2012 Hurricane Sandy rocked the east coast of the United States, especially New York and New Jersey. People are still re-building and recovering from the Super Storm, and are now planning for a future in which the things they love are around for future generations even if more extreme events happen.

The National Parks Conservation Association gathered participants from the National Park Service, local municipalities, non-profits, universities and businesses to learn and brainstorm for the future. The group was expertly facilitated by Dorian and Meagan from the Center for Collaborative Policy, identified projects they wanted to see come to life and signed up to start carrying the action forward. Here are a few drawings from the day!
