Air quality issues. Inequality. Public health challenges. Flash floods. Infrastructure failure. Extreme weather. These are just a few of the chronic stresses and acute shocks that challenge and threaten Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh has made significant progress in improving environmental stewardship and transitioning from a city in decline to a thriving hub of innovation, technology, education and medicine. However we recognize that there is still a need for focused, inclusive efforts to ensure all Pittsburgh residents and visitors live well and succeed. In December 2014, Pittsburgh was selected as a member of the second cohort of 100 Resilient Cities—Pioneered by Rockefeller Foundation (100RC). The Community Deliberative Forums are on November 17th and November 19th.
