Event Description:
Reopening -  All or nothing? with Daniele Lantagne

A risk reduction framework for a safe and equitable limited reopening of schools, business and society
ABOUT DANIELE LANTAGNE:  Daniele earned her bachelor's and master's degrees in environmental engineering from MIT in 1996 and 2001. She received her Ph.D. from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in 2011. Between her degrees she worked as a public health engineer at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (2003-2010). She joined Tufts University as an Associate Professor in Civil and Environmental Engineering from a postdoctoral fellowship in sustainability science at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government. Since 2000, Lantagne has provided technical assistance to, and evaluation of, water treatment programs in more than 40 countries across Africa, Asia, and Central and South America. In 2011, she was on the team that submitted "Report of the Independent Panel of Experts on the Cholera Outbreak in Haiti" to the United Nations Secretary General. 
ABOUT TURNING ’21:  This new virtual series is to answer questions for the community and the region. The theme is resilience – “the capacity of individuals, communities, institutions, businesses, and systems within a city to survive, adapt, and grow no matter what kinds of chronic stresses and acute shocks they experience.”  [Rockefeller Foundation's 100 Resilient Cities project.]   Attendance is free and open to the public but registration is required.   Turning ’21 is sponsored by Winter Hill Bank 
WHY SOMERVILLE?: Somerville is: the most densely populated city in New England; closer to downtown Boston than most of the City of Boston; and in the Brainpower Triangle of MIT, Harvard and Tufts.
WHY ’21?: In 2021, Somerville’s 4.2 square miles stand to be the leading edge of Greater Boston’s urban resilience. Few, if any, little cities in the world will see the incredible concentration of urban development in just 12 months as here.  In early 2021, Somerville will open a $256M high school.  During the year, Puma’s North American HQ will open.  Urban life sciences and mixed-use developments will break ground, while others will cut ribbons, in Boynton Yards, Union Square, McGrath Highway, Assembly’s Edge and Xmbly.  Brickbottom master planning will begin.  A new community path to Boston will open.  By year’s end, 85%+ of Somerville residents will live within walking distance of a mass transit station on Orange, Green, or Red line.  Somerville is best positioned to pioneer the region’s resilience frontier.  Let’s start today.
