This Summary of Findings details the results of a Community Resilience Building workshop hosted by Tufts University in 2018. The workshop was organized by the Office of Sustainability and the Office of Emergency Management. This was an opportunity for stakeholders from the town and campus to come together and discuss climate resilience. It focused on the Tufts campus, but included city representatives from Medford and Somerville, Massachusetts.
The Community Resilience Building (CRB) workshop is a tool developed by The Nature Conservancy, which guides communities through the process of organizing and executing a community resilience building workshop. During the workshop participants define climate hazards, identify strengths and vulnerabilities, and develop and prioritize actions to build resilience.
