Audio Description: The video below showcases outreach efforts, including workshops in all five boroughs, to create a stronger, more resilient New York City.

The process of rebuilding and thinking long term requires a strong framework to structure ongoing engagement and, ultimately, real action. Facilitating a structured conversation with the community was an important tool for report development and will continue to be instrumental in resiliency efforts. Thus, community outreach is being conducted on several levels:

  • City, State, and Federal government

  • Elected officials and community boards

  • Local businesses, civic and nonprofit associations, and faith organizations

  • New Yorkers with a stake in long-term rebuilding

  • Industry, academic, and policy thought leaders have been engaged in all subject-matter areas, leveraging the vast intellectual community in New York City and throughout the world
