“Fight or Flight? Rethinking the Urban Footprint is a four-part series that will address how the urgency of climate change requires design professionals to rethink the built environment. Rising seas, extreme heat, drought, and wildfires are among the environmental stressors that will continue to affect communities throughout the United States and the world. We are now confronted with the urgent need of creating relocation strategies for individual households, communities, and cities.  

As architects, planners, landscape architects, and related professionals, it is our ethical responsibility to integrate thinking about relocation into our practices. The economic, social, and environmental impacts associated with climate migration and relocation will be a large part of this conversation, along with equity and environmental justice. We recognize that it is incumbent upon us to find appropriate pathways forward as swiftly as possible. To that end, this series is organized into four sessions: 

Navigating Roadmaps to Success

The final session will recap previous programs and will serve a call to action to participants of the series. Speakers will discuss what relocation might look like in different settings, what happens to newly empty land, vacated buildings, and installations. We will conclude with next steps: short-, medium-, and long-term actions that each of us can undertake to address and manage migration and relocation in our communities, cities, and countries.
