In association with the goals of the Interagency Partnership for Sustainable Communities, this conference brings together many different lecturers to discuss housing, transportation, water infrastructure, energy conservation, and land use planning and investment…

…with the overarching goal of figuring out what makes our communities sustainable.

Speakers will discuss how federal and state agencies determine which communities should receive sustainable investment, and also how a regional approach will have the greatest economic and practical benefit.

Speakers include representatives from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, PennDOT, and the PA Environmental Protection Agency, with a keynote address by Peter Calthorpe, Principal, Calthorpe Associates – Urban Designers, Planners, Architects.

How does this apply to your business?

A community with functional infrastructure is the backbone of a healthy business district.

Input from conference participants will influence an action plan that Sustainable Pittsburgh will present to candidates for Governor and other political leaders.

Hopefully you can attend to teach about your community and learn about solutions.

Register early and save $20!
