  • NEW THIS YEAR! This year we will offer roundtable discussions at the end of the day rather than a 3rd workshop session. Don't miss this opportunity to both listen and share your own expertise in one of nine topical group discussions (Saturday workshop list). Be sure to sign up when you register.

Majora Carter - Keynote Speaker

Building Proud Communities

When New York City wanted to bring 40% of its trash to her neighborhood in the South Bronx, Majora Carter pushed back. Her goal of building a prouder community grew to include more than just green space.

In partnership with local government, businesses, and neighborhood organizations she has improved opportunities for transportation, fitness and recreation, nutrition, and economic development. Majora’s lessons learned will remind us that environment is just one component in building a stronger, healthier community.
