Nature always wins. The Earth will experience seismic activity, volcanic activity, pandemics and cyclical changes in climate that will affect our lives in some way. There’s no disputing this, so how can we be ready to keep our families and loved ones safer and more resilient to the weather? How can we work with the knowledge we have on sea-level rise, the frequency of flooding and storms, global population growth, energy use, infrastructure status, water resources and food security? 

Listen in on Gary Lawrence, chief sustainability officer; Dr. Thomas Tang, director, sustainability in Asia; Bill Looney, nano technology expert; Susan Leal, chief strategy officer, water; and Jill Jago, sustainability communications consultant, by visiting AECOM’s Google+ page during the live broadcast on Monday, April 21, at 5 p.m. EDT.
