Can we build disaster resilient communities? Gregory Kopp at TEDxWesternU

Gregory Kopp, a Canada Research Chair, shares stories of storm chasing and the results of his ongoing research on how to build disaster-resilient communities.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
