From our organizers:
What is the future of our city regions? Will they be unbearably hot and regularly flooded by intense rains and high tides? Will they be increasingly unhealthy and more divided between ‘us and them’? Will there be a lack of green space and job opportunities? Will there even be bird song?
CitiesAlive® provides green infrastructure solutions to urban challenges by bringing together design professionals and policy makers. Discover cutting edge design projects, policy developments, new research, and innovative products that are shaping a better, more resilient future.
Returning to the East Coast, CitiesAlive®, Annual Green Infrastructure Conference will take place in Brooklyn, New York September 24-28. This year’s conference will profile leading edge living architecture and green infrastructure technology and strategies suited to New York’s unique characteristics and challenges through a trade show exhibition, and a variety of tours, technical sessions, and workshops. This year’s theme is Green Infrastructure, Designing the Future of Resiliency. CitiesAlive® 2018 will explore topics like urban agriculture, vertical forests, coastal greening, green finance, new regulations, performance metrics, research, integrated stormwater capture and reuse and more.
