Measuring impacts on the environmental, social, and economic aspects of our cities and infrastructures is only a first, albeit essential, step towards a sustainable future. With limitless moving parts, and many stakeholders with varying degrees of interest, incentives, and motivation, making a compelling case for sustainable infrastructure projects requires a clear and well-structured road map. The conference will bring together leading thinkers and practitioners to help attendees gain valuable insights they can put into action now. Topics include:

•  Quantification and assessment of sustainable infrastructure projects: the environmental, social, and economic dimensions of sustainable infrastructure
•  Application of sustainability assessment at the project level
•  Making a compelling business case for green infrastructure and large scale developments
•  The role of private and public owners, financiers, regulators, engineers, planners and designers
•  Allocating financial resources in light of diminishing government budgets
•  Motivating change and the role of NGOs
•  Intelligent systems for sustainable projects

With keynote lectures by Peter Park and Janette Sadik-Khan. View the full program.

Registration is $50 for non-GSD students, $100 for academic and non-profit employees, and $250 for industry professionals. For more information and to register, visit the conference website.


Organized by the Zofnass Program for Sustainable Infrastructure at Harvard GSD.
