“Y-PLAN Site Mapping and Resilient Bay Inspiration Tour: Skyline High School” by Vanessa Vasquez ‘18
What is natural and what is artificial? If they, as an agile group of teenagers, struggle to cross a busy street, what would their younger siblings do? If sea level rise claims part of their city’s land, who will suffer first? Read about the way Skyline High School Y-PLAN students grappled with these questions and more, with the support of the Center for Cities + Schools, the Resilient by Design | Bay Area Challenge's ABC Team, and the City of Oakland, on their site mapping and inspiration tour on February 15, 2018.
UC Berkeley’s Center for Cities + Schools and the Resilient by Design | Bay Area Challenge, funded by the Rockefeller Foundation, kicked off the spring Y-PLAN Youth Challenge on Tuesday, January 30th at the Bay Area Metro Center in San Francisco.
