Resilient, Sustainable Cities from the ‘Neighborhood Up’: Low-Carbon Districts and Communities


As cities undergo the biggest growth of the past 100 years, significant investments are being made to build and revitalize neighborhoods and commercial districts. With rapid growth, however, often comes an expanding equity gap in terms of income, education and health. While neighborhoods offer some of the most complex challenges facing city makers today, they also provide an opportunity to test scaleable solutions. By collaborating on neighborhood level sustainable development projects, property owners, businesses, and residents are able to accelerate investments toward increased equity, resilience and climate protection. Can neighborhood-scale innovations bridge the gap between our current urban infrastructure and the low-carbon cities of the future? Join us for a session with pioneers in district and neighborhood-scale urban regeneration and resilience.

In partnership with the Urban Land Institute San Francisco.
