The AIANY is hosting “Everything Water 4.0: 5 Years After Sandy,” an event that will explore the role of water in our lives. Water is something that can help, but also hurt us, as was exemplified with Hurricane Sandy back in 2013.

The day-long symposium will focus on issues surrounding water resources and understanding how to alleviate the devastation that this vital resource is capable of at the local, regional, national, and international levels. The speakers and panelists will discuss various ideas to tackle broad urban responses and water-related disasters to risk and security and imaginative solutions to future challenges.

This event will be located the American Institute of Architects New York, and starts at 9 am.
