2nd International Symposium
for Resilient Communities
April 14-15, 2016 | Koriyama City, Japan


The Institute for Resilient Communities at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Koriyama City (郡山市), and the Fukushima Renewable Energy Institute, AIST (FREA) are pleased to invite you to the Second International Symposium for Resilient Communities. This symposium will be held in Koriyama City, Japan, on April 14-15, 2016.

To minimize the impact of sudden or long-term changes induced by human actions or nature, the pillars of resilience -- science, education, and communities -- will be addressed in an international, multi-disciplinary, and multi-cultural context.

Progress, challenges, and opportunities in Fukushima will be presented toward revitalization of the area with worldwide impact. Recovery, as well as promotion, will be explored in the context of resilience.

We look forward to welcoming you in Koriyama City in April 2016.
