Teaching Coastal Resilience Using Geodesign: A Study of Virginia Beach

This study examines using Geodesign as a framework for generating resilient plans and policies for coastal resilience. Particularly, Geodesignhub ( is used to evaluate scenarios for adapting to sea level rise in the City of Virginia Beach, United States. Currently, this city facing a sea level rise with frequent storm surges, does not have a comprehensive resilient plan against sea level rise. As such, Geodesignhub was used to generate and evaluate scenarios to produce such a plan. In addition, Geodesignhub is used to teach coastal resilience to landscape architecture students. Students prepared the datasets and participated in Geodesign workshops as interest groups. Overall, Geodesignhub was effective in generating scenarios as well as teaching complex resilience issues.
