The 1st Annual Northeast Sustainable Communities Workshop will focus on brownfields redevelopment and its intersection with sustainability. The exciting and informative topics will include:

Multi-stakeholder Initiatives for Sustainable Brownfields Redevelopment
Brownfields and Climate Change
Communities as Brownfield Developers
Regionalism, Smart Growth and Brownfields
Sustainable Approaches to Assessment and Remediation to Brownfields Sites
Green Development on Brownfields
Sustainable Approaches to Restoration of Water Systems
Using Brownfields to Create Self-Sufficient Neighborhoods
Public / Private Partnerships for Sustainability

It is intended that the workshop will not simply add 'sustainability' to the list of issues related to Brownfields but will look deeply at the interconnections and confluences that make for creating sustainable communities through Brownfields redevelopment. Brownfields are uniquely suited to be a place for sustainable redevelopment to grow. The program for this workshop is intended to be one day of intensive, high energy exchanges between stakeholders sharing varied perspectives on the issues surrounding Brownfields and sustainability. Stakeholder perspectives that include real estate finance, government at all levels, corporations, community representatives, NGOs and consultants who provide a range of technical expertise will participate in interactive sessions that focus on best practices and the challenges to their implementation. The focus will be on problem-solving.
