Scenario Planning for Epic Disruptions – How to Future-Proof our Infrastructure

Opportunity Overview

 July 22, 2020; 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm EDT

This is a virtual event.

Per the ASCE, “The COVID-19 pandemic is requiring civil engineers and city planners to rapidly adjust plans with less cars on the road, fewer transit trips, new demands on electric and water utilities, capacity constraints on sidewalks and in urban open spaces, all with less revenue. Jerry Buckwalter will offer insights about similar “disruptors” from ASCE’s Future World Vision initiative, which is designed to explore long term trends and potential future scenarios for the built environment in an engaging visual platform. In addition, you will hear from local agency leaders about how they are planning for the future in an uncertain world, and how COVID-19 may have recently altered those plans.”

Presenter: Gerald (Jerry) Buckwalter, M.ASCE , Chief Operating and Strategy Officer, ASCE

Consider pairing attendance at this professional development opportunity with Bringing Science and Engineering to Safety, an event relevant for engineers of various backgrounds who seek to enhance their perspectives on how to improve safety measures and prevent avoidable tragedies across sectors.
