Disaster resilience embodies two concepts: adaptation and recovery. As climate change exacerbates the occurrence and intensity of environmental disasters, innovators and decision makers must collaborate to help vulnerable communities and the build environment adapt to and recover from shocks and stresses in a sustainable way without compromising long-term development. This course is tailored to solution-oriented students who are comfortable focusing on wicked problems, and care about the complexity of sustainable and equitable innovation. The course intends to teach students how to lead the design and implementation of products and services that will help real people who are experiencing disaster, with an emphasis on those facing disproportionate effects due to historical contexts. This course is only open to undergraduate students.
