Regional Renaissance in Action: Re-building, Re-branding, Re-energizing the Gulf Coast

Posted on: November 10th, 2015 by Carrie Kissel

Throughout the past 10 years, New Orleans and the Gulf Coast have experienced major hurricanes, a devastating oil spill, and the impacts of a lagging national economy.  But the city and communities along the coast and across the Greater New Orleans region fought back.  During this plenary session, attendees heard how the region came together to re-build, re-brand,  and rejuvenate itself culturally, socially, and economically while also creating systems that are better prepared to withstand and bounce back from future natural and economic disruptions.

Michael Hecht, Greater New Orleans, Inc., provided the presentation below; additional speakers provided remarks but did not use presentation materials.
