About the Annual Conference

Each year, NCSE’s Annual Conference brings together national leaders in education, government, civil society, and business to facilitate solutions-oriented conversations. Through different annual themes, the conference attracts more than 700 individuals from a diverse community of experts from different disciplines. Attendees have the opportunity to learn from one another, collaborate, and build productive professional relations. Find out more about past and future meetings.

Sustainable Infrastructure & Resilience
Challenges such as extreme weather events, growing urbanization, and resource scarcity create stress and complexity on the demand to balance natural, social, cyber, and built infrastructure. There is an effort to develop a sustainable, resilient, healthy, and equitable world, and the role of science in this effort is significant. Collaboration across the scientific, business, and education communities is necessary to build resilience across ecosystems, communities, markets, and traditional infrastructure. Attendees of the 2019 Annual Conference will discuss the challenges and opportunities for moving forward in a changing world. More about the Theme.

About NCSE

The National Council for Science and the Environment (NCSE) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that aims to improve the scientific basis for environmental decision-making. We convene diverse leaders in interdisciplinary research, education, policy, and business to strengthen the role of science and higher education in policy through our three main focus areas: Research and Education, Leadership and Community, and Policy and Decision-making.

NCSE specializes in programs that foster collaboration between the diverse institutions and individuals creating and using environmental knowledge, including research, education, environmental, and business organizations as well as governmental bodies at all levels. We work collectively to make science relevant to real world decision-making on critical environmental challenges. While an advocate for science and its use, NCSE does not take positions on environmental issues. With a longstanding reputation for objectivity and non-partisanship, we are able to provide a neutral forum for all.
