The Summit is a national event designed to tackle the pressing issue of creating Smart, Sustainable, Livable communities. Beyond “thinking green,” the Summit will address the topic of sustainability in the context of economic, health, social and environmental issues. As a critical strategy for long-term economic vitality of a region, we’ll discuss best practices and policies around jobs, finance, energy, facilities, infrastructure and urban planning.
The Summit will help government leaders address the pressing financial challenges they face by unlocking new sources of revenue, cost savings and economic development strategies associated with building 21st century communities.
