The first Chicago Southland Green Drinks of 2015 will feature David Waggonner, of New Orleans-based Waggonner & Ball Architects, one of the principal thought leaders behind the post-Katrina Living With Water plan, and an expert on the intersections between community development, resiliency planning and ecosystems. David will explore conditions before, during and since Hurricane Katrina, and what the Chicago Southland and broader region can learn from those experiences as it wrestles with flooding, climate change and more.
The event is free, but to track attendance, we do ask that you register here via EventBrite. Come mingle with friends and colleagues from 6pm to 6:30pm, at which point the program will begin.
