Happy Thursday Friends, Clients & Colleagues,

We hope this BREAKING NEWS finds you well.

As a Steering Committee Member, I join my colleagues in celebrating the launch of the Resilience305 Strategy — the culmination of 3 years of extensive stakeholder engagement and listening sessions — designed to tackle economic, social & environmental stresses in the Greater Miami & the Beaches region and make our community truly resilient — in the short & long term.

Personally, Marile and I are honored and proud to join in the unparalleled dedication and commitment of public, civic, business, and community leaders — who worked tirelessly alongside the 100 Resilient Cities (100RC) Network to develop the plan’s comprehensive and inclusive strategy.

Together, we can build a city that is not only prepared to survive, but to thrive![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9IPf4F8Ed4″][vc_column_text]

Resilient305 is a partnership between the City of Miami Government, Miami Dade Government, and Miami Beach Government. As a member of 100 Resilient Cities, which is pioneered by the Rockefeller Foundation, Resilient Greater Miami & the Beaches is tackling challenges that directly affect our community. Together, we can build a city that is not only prepared to survive, but to thrive.

During the announcement, Mayor Francis Suarez, City of Miami, stressed how this collaborative strategy “marks a milestone for our efforts to combat everything from sea level rise to job creation, & serves as a model of collaboration for the world.” Urban resilience is “how we mitigate and bounce back from an economic, social, or environmental threat.”

I agree wholeheartedly — “collaboration” is the key in tackling 21st-century challenges.

As you will see, Resilience305 is a response to the major economic, environmental and social challenges our local communities face and addresses these challenges through “intergovernmental and community collaboration”.

[/vc_column_text][vc_separator][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Resilient 305 will focus on three main goal areas:

  • Places — addressing location-based challenges such as mobility, design & planning, housing, and ecosystems.
  • People — supporting health services, job & wealth creation, and neighborhood & network empowerment.
  • Pathways — unifying governments, businesses, community organizations, and educational institutions.

The PIVOT Team — Progress; Innovation; Vision for Our Tomorrow — will oversee implementation.

Moreover, Resilience305 will further complement existing initiatives from the public sector — such as Miami-Dade County’s transportation SMART Plan, City of Miami’s Forever Bond, and Miami Beach Rising Above.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yjEdiOo_E1k”][vc_column_text]

This burgeoning region — distinct for its multi-cultural perspective — is the ideal stage for becoming a global leader in tackling 21st-century challenges.
