Please join us for an exciting workshop, “Sustainability Among the Silos: A Professional Dialogue on Changes to Planning Practice to Meet the Challenges of Future Sustainability.”

The pursuit of a sustainable future and climate mitigation and adaptation—in areas such as housing, land use, economic development, transportation, public health, resiliency, and environmental protection—is a critical imperative for our communities, our regions, our country, and the entire world. It is a pursuit that challenges the planning profession to adapt its practices in order to holistically incorporate the demands of sustainability across the many policy, legislative, and jurisdictional silos in which planners do their work.

In recognition of the challenge inherent in planning for sustainability, the APA New York Metro Chapter is beginning an initiative to explore the feasibility of change within the profession and the way that change might be accomplished. Through Sustainability Among the Silos, the Chapter seeks to marshal the experiences and insights of its members to optimize the profession’s role in the pursuit of sustainability by harnessing the energy and creativity of our communities and our technologies to craft wide-ranging solutions to the crucial problems that we all currently face. A Chapter workshop is the first step in this initiative.

Pre-Registration is required. RSVP for the workshop by 11/18 HERE
