Sustainable Infrastructure & Resilience
No part of the planet is untouched by the impact of the more than seven billion human inhabitants. Collectively, we face pressing challenges such as extreme weather from climate change, growing urbanization, and resource scarcity. These challenges make cities and ecosystems more vulnerable; triggering an urgent call to develop a sustainable, healthy, and just world. At the 2019 Annual Conference, attendees will look at the opportunities and challenges for sustainability at the convergence of built, natural, social, and cyber infrastructure. Attendees will also explore examples of community resilience and discuss how to apply best practices in their community. More about the Theme.
