In partnership with Florida International University, ISD is hosting the First Annual “Blue Skies” Summit in Miami, Florida. This event is centered around the theme of “blue skies” because the day a disaster happens is the worst time to exchange business cards, get information, and make your plans – preferably you want to make these connections under blue skies.  

This is an opportunity for community leaders and members to learn and share best practices when it comes to disaster recovery and resiliency. We want to help you create a network of networks within your community to prepare for future disasters and establish resilience of small businesses, chambers of commerce, and under-represented groups.

This summit will bring together state and local government leads, private sector leads, academic experts, and federal and national government stakeholders to discuss climate adaptation challenges, education and workforce development, innovation and best practices, and financing recovery, resilience, and development.  

Island Resiliency Forum is optional and takes place November 11th-12th.

The Island Resiliency Forum: Lessons Learned from the Florida Keys After Irma will be a “rolling one,.” Board a bus to the Florida Keys and enjoy a number of showcases and presentations, including: the Big Pine Key Volunteer Village showcase, Islamorada case study, and presentations on Green Building and Affordable Housing, Volunteer Management, Economic Recovery, Enhancing Future Resilience, Lessons Learned about Evacuation and Mass Care, Mental and Environmental Health, Travel and Tourism Recovery, and Post-Disaster Financing.
