Earlier this fall, the Climate Science Alliance team was proud to present on the Connecting Wildlands and Communities project at the second annual San Diego Design Week (SDDW) held September 8-12, 2021. During our session, entitled, “Designing for Climate Change”, project artists and researchers shared their unique views on “connection,” exploring how people, landscapes, and data can come together to influence the final products and the critical role design plays in advancing a community-centered approach to a climate-resilient future.

This year’s SDDW featured presentations, studio tours, workshops and more to celebrate design throughout the binational design community of San Diego and Tijuana. Over 4,500 attendees participated in SDDW, with 1,850 individuals engaging in one or more virtual events. The website had over 16,000 visitors and 128,000 page views during the month leading up to and including SDDW.

The Climate Science Alliance team is grateful for the opportunity to lead this vital conversation alongside dedicated project artists and researchers.
