The conference will focus on how to build more resilient communities, identify strategies to mitigate the challenges of natural disaster response, and examine the lessons learned during recovery to further build resilience and heal community trauma. Topics will include: learning the importance of embedding resilience within the community; identifying frameworks to build resilient communities; building and strengthening partnerships between all levels of government, private stakeholders, and local communities; developing tailored strategies to better engage communities in recovery to address trauma; and learning how resilience comes full circle from preparedness to recovery.

As Smart Cities and nanotechnology are emerging, these have the potential to improve community resilience. We are hosting our Think Tank from San Diego, California, one of the leaders in the Smart City initiative. Smart City San Diego is a broad public-private collaboration that includes the City of San Diego, San Diego Gas & Electric, General Electric, the University of California-San Diego, and CleanTech San Diego. Joining the discussion is San Diego-based startup AerNos, Inc, a nano gas sensor company developing air quality monitoring solutions for Smart Cities. Deployed on smart street lights and parking meters, AerNos sensors will provide granular, actionable data to cities. The objective of the collaboration is to improve the region's energy independence, to empower consumers to use electric vehicles, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and to encourage economic growth. This webinar will look at the use of nanotechnology in helping develop Smart Cities and how this new technology could affect the field of emergency management. Speakers will include: Erik Caldwell, director, City of San Diego (California) Economic Development Department; Sundip R. Doshi, founder and CEO, AerNos, Inc., and John Valencia, executive director, City of San Diego's Office of Homeland Security. The Think Tank will be moderated by Richard Serino. speaker bios
