Each year’s Meeting is a premier leadership summit focused on the tools that sustainable cities are actively using. For two days, participants from the public, NGO, and private sectors engage in a lively discussion on how to “connect the dots” across key sectors: building systems, energy and water resources, mobility, and finance.Underpinning this year’s discussion is a growing imperative to make sense of the complex interplay between natural ecosystems and human infrastructure systems. The 2011 Meeting in Boulder, Co, USA looked at how urban/regional decisions have become inextricably linked, and what elements of cross-sector partnership are critical for successful solutions.
