2016 Resilience Team - Week 8

This week we failed forward. The Green Initiative Fund (the grant to which we applied several weeks ago) is running low on funds for this quarter due to a large solar project, and requested that we reapply next quarter. Nonetheless, because we have already packed so many hours into consultations and project design, we are in a very strong position. We have already met with and obtained plans of Boelter Hall (see image) from the campus architect and campus engineer. We also made great strides forward on our campus resilience planning. On Monday we presented our best practices research to a group of UCLA resilience stakeholders. The stakeholders were very receptive to our research, and had very valuable input. This meeting the first step in creating a taskforce that will create a plan. So yes, we are planning to plan. That is how you know the scale of our project is enormous.
