The Communities & Affordable Homes Summit will take place at Greenbuild 2017 in Boston. The Summit will focus on the development of vibrant, sustainable communities through the lenses of resilience, social equity, health and economic opportunity. Community and sustainability leaders will join together for a day of knowledge sharing and problem solving with the goal of expediting the economic, social, and ecological health and vitality of all communities.
The Summit convenes multi-disciplinary leaders to learn, share and tackle major issues facing people and communities in today’s world. This year we are turning up the heat on the Summit with the launch of interactive problem solving, hands-on training and even more evocative speakers. Attendees will work in small groups to identify an action agenda for the coming year. The Summit is a launch pad for a series of events hosted in local communities around the country to transform dialog into action. We invite partners, leaders and practitioners to join us in Boston and beyond – be part of the action!
Multi-disciplinary leaders will facilitate small group dialogue, knowledge sharing and problem solving with the singular goal of expediting the economic, social, and ecological health of underserved communities locally, regionally and globally.
