Only 3 weeks left until your favorite humanitarian design and resiliency conference!
As the clock ticks the line-up of speakers grows to include pioneers from all corners of the industry. Discussions will focus on post disaster resiliency and sustainable building materials, designing active cities, rethinking the needs of our rapidly shrinking population. This year's event, with the theme Designing for a More Resilient World is sure to leave you motivated to create, build, and network for the greater good.
After the recent announcement at the Clinton Global Initiative on the Commitment to Action with Rockefeller Foundation's 100 Resilient Cities Centennial Challenge, we are thrilled to announce that this year's Keynote Speaker is the Challenge's very own Managing Director, Michael Berkowitz.
Our panelists and moderators are a collection of highly respected, global good leaders from companies, organization and institutions working to tackle the planet's environmental design issues. Register today for you chance to listen and speak to leading disaster respondents, pioneers in sustainable research, and social impact spearheaders during post-panel breakout sessions, and after the event at our open-bar reception.
