On March 8th, join us for “Building Blocks for Sustainability,” part of the Frame Your Future Event Series.⁠

Metropolitan regions are characterized by their complex reciprocities between technology and people, nature and culture, with incoming and outgoing flows of energy, water, resources, and materials. They account for 70% of global GDP and an even larger share of GHG emissions and waste. New technology, reconfigured supply chains, transportation networks, architectural and engineering solutions, and other trends are changing how we think about sustainability and climate change adaptation at strategic and local levels. Today, more than ever, there is a demand to treat sustainability as a significant and strategic value driver that ensures the needs of the present without compromising the security and prosperity of future generations. We want to meet this need by contributing to the holistic perspectives and interdisciplinary conversations that explore the ideas and building blocks of delivering a more sustainable and equitable built environment.⁠
