The Great Shift:
People-Centered Emergency Management

Dan Neely

  • Manager of Community Resilience & Group Recovery Manager, Wellington Region Emergency Management Office, New Zealand

Join us for a virtual discussion with community-resilience expert Dan Neely, facilitated by Youth Council Coordinator Tye Waggoner and Community Resilience Coordinator Marcus Donaldson from the CIty of Tempe's Office of Sustainability and Resilience.

Nearly 10 years in the making, Neely's community-resilience model has transformed Wellington's Emergency Management's relationships with local and indigenous Māori communities. Shifting from command-and-control to communicate-and-collaborate around community-driven solutions, emergency managers act to increase connectedness, cooperation, innovation, and placemaking. Neely will share practical ways to build resilience so that communities function well every day, not just during and after emergencies.

Co-sponsored by the Sustainable Cities Network and the City of Tempe–ASU collaborative project “Neighborhood Justice/Cool Kids,” funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
