Uniting the world’s most innovative city makers
to create a global community equipped with the knowledge, tools, and connections to start making change at the district scale.
This year, Washington D.C.—a case study in the spirit of creative collaboration—serves as our host as we explore ground-breaking strategies and emerging best practices for creating sustainable cities from the neighborhood up:
- GET INSPIRED by innovative ideas from 90+ speakers, addressing the most pressing urban challenges, from climate change to neighborhood revitalization.
- LEARN how to accelerate your urban development projects through 25+ cutting edge sessions and hands-on trainings that will give you the tools to build jobs, protect the environment and strengthen the social fabric of your community.
- EXPERIENCE real life ecodistrict projects and meet the leaders who are spearheading these next-generation neighborhoods.
- CONNECT with fellow city-makers in-person. There’s no better way to build new relationships and strengthen existing ones.
From the nuts-and-bolts details to the big picture vision, you’ll leave the Summit with a clear sense of the sustainable urban development movement, a growing network of fellow practitioners, and the inspiration and tools to activate change in your own community.
