Climate, Equity and Health
Event Description

As we navigate this historic time for climate change, racial equity and public health, the built environment sits front and center. New state and federal climate policies are being enacted, and technologies are starting to be deployed at a large enough scale to affect outcomes in all three arenas for generations. 

Our 2021 conference will investigate how we can optimize policy and building design for climate, equity and health together—and discard paradigms that sometimes pit one against the other for compromised solutions. Experts will shed light on the aspects of public policy that are most likely to provide sustainable, equitable and healthy outcomes for all. 

We’ll explore the benefits and unintended consequences of emerging technologies. And we’ll hear about real-world collaborative solutions that integrate these aspects.
