This Key Note Forum is part of our KEY NOTES ON DISASTER PREPAREDNESS AND CLIMATE RESILIENCE series.

Reflecting on our community’s experiences and response during the most recent climate events, this semester’s Pratt Earth Action Week (November 1st – November 6th, 2021) will center around keynote discussions to reckon with our current systems for disaster response and ideate on how we can collectively build better and more resilient frameworks for future climate events. The week’s programming will continue to address the intersecting crises of climate change, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the racial and social justice protests that have brought into relief systemic inequalities and unsustainable systems. Coordinated events throughout the week will provide an architecture for conversation, debate, and development of design solutions toward change with a focus on the relationship between climate change and mental health.
Rather than a single keynote, we will be hosting a week-long symposium of “key notes” building on the Pratt community and our local community’s experiences, institutional preparedness, the role of the artist and designer, and resources and ideation for improvements in response to recent and expected future climate events.
