2023 Resilient Virginia Conference: Economic Opportunities for Community Resilience

August 1, 2023 @ 7:30 am August 2, 2023 @ 6:30 pm

The 2023 Resilient Virginia Conference brings together participants from federal, state, and local governments; local and national businesses; representatives from higher education; and community organizations to learn about a diverse array of resiliency topics.

The conference will highlight how businesses and communities can work together to:

  • Grow investments that support a low-carbon economy;
  • Provide examples from urban and rural communities on approaches to resiliency that include climate risk assessments that lead to economic, health, and equity considerations; and
  • Increase resilience in the face of disruption from extreme weather disasters and on-going climate concerns that impact community health and vitality.

The conference will also address the significant catalyst, provided by the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) and the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), that is bringing business and workforce development to communities while providing extensive investments in the resilience of infrastructure and clean energy systems.
