Panel | Driving Growth Through Sustainability

The common perception of environmental sustainability is that it costs money, limits opportunity and ties up worthwhile activity in red tape. But as climate change outpaces all forecasts, responding to climate change and finding ways to restore the climate are primed to be the greatest growth industry of the 21st Century. The sustainability strategy of every community should reach beyond reducing carbon emissions and cleaning up pollution to start, grow and attract green industries. Hear from community leaders who are building innovative green clusters about the challenges they face, the potential gains and the successes they have already achieved.

Panel | Building An Innovation Ecosystem

Every city and region needs an innovation strategy. But they invest in innovation in different ways to meet different needs. Some are coping with the stresses of growth and make digital investments that maintain or improve quality of life, from traffic management and utility operations to emergency services, street lighting and health management. Others aim to prevent or overcome economic stagnation and invest in the infrastructure of growth, from connectivity and workforce development to innovation and digital inclusion.
