The Department of Urban and Regional Planning at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa is hosting APA Hawaii Chapter's “World Town Planning Day 2017.” In 2016, O‘ahu voters approved a City Charter Amendment to create an Office of Climate Change, Sustainability and Resiliency. Several months prior, Honolulu was selected into the third and final round of the Rockefeller Foundation’s 100 Resilient Cities Initiative. Participants will be introduced to the Office, its Executive Director and Chief Resilience Officer, and its mandate; learn about approaching resilience through assessing and addressing shocks and stresses; and contribute to the Office’s perceptions assessment through a live interactive survey. Panelists will discuss emerging stakeholder outreach results highlighting community, business, and government identified strengths and weaknesses, and shocks and stresses: housing and affordability, coastal hazards and infrastructure, and clean energy and climate change mitigation. Following the three panelists’ remarks,
