Meeting of the Minds 2012 Ustream Video
We know that last week’s sessions at Meeting of the Minds 2012 in San Francisco were valuable and unique – so it’s no surprise that we’ve had many requests to post the video of those sessions. Indeed, every one of the sessions is worth another look.
We’ve begun the editing process for the high-quality videos, but as you can imagine, we will need some time to edit and polish.
In the meantime, we’ve asked that the video captured during our live webcast on Ustream be made available. Below you will find the webcast footage, accompanied by the list of sessions captured in each video. Again, these are unedited videos that contain multiple sessions. Edited videos are on their way, and when complete, will be added to our Talks page.
There have also been requests for the slides of each session. If you click on the title of each session below you will find the session’s description, speakers and slides (when available).

Spotlighting innovations in urban sustainability and connected technology
Investing in at-risk communities before disaster strikes is one of the most cost-effective ways to protect residents and property while increasing their ability to weather the severe storms ahead. At Enterprise Community Partners, our Resilient Communities Initiative works nationwide to strengthen communities and equip residents so they are better prepared for, and able to respond to extreme weather events and other emergencies. We provide technical assistance, grant funding, research and analysis, and build innovative tools to support this goal.
The Climate-Smart Cities program at The Trust for Public Land is designed to help cities overcome barriers through a holistic, urban planning approach, bringing a broad range of traditional and non-traditional partners together to develop a common understanding of the needs and opportunities in their communities through the strategic deployment of green infrastructure. We believe that inter-agency and cross-sector collaboration can unlock hidden resources for multiple-benefit, climate-smart green infrastructure for the benefit of the communities who need it most.
