Now in its fifth year, this event has grown in popularity with a record 375 attendees last year.
Why? This conference takes on the real issues facing those engaged in regenerating our communities. With a unique format-engaging everyone who attends- in the conference, this year we will face the reality of unprecedented weather events battering our systems and shaking our confidence in the status quo. We will challenge assumptions upon which current sustainability principles are based, and seek to identify pathways to a future that can stand up to the challenges ahead.
Starting from land recycling and the challenges of appropriate development, the conference topics will range from infrastructure development to renewable energy and new approaches to almost everything we now consider commonplace. We will engage policy leaders, practitioners, and visionaries who are working today to create a more resilient future. Come join the conversation on March 5th at the Liberty Science Center in Jersey City.
