Brownfields Conference Seeks Session Proposals for 2011
The 14th National Brownfields Conference is headed to Philadelphia on April 3-5, 2011. It is the largest, most comprehensive conference focused on cleaning up and redeveloping abandoned, underutilized, and potentially contaminated properties in the nation.
Co-sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the International City/County Management Association (ICMA), the conference attracts more than 5,000 registrants and hundreds of exhibitors.
The educational program is a direct result of the conference’s national call for ideas and is designed to address the important issues facing brownfields practitioners, policy makers, and communities today. This year, conference organizers are particularly interested in new ideas related to green jobs, community engagement and environmental justice, the business of brownfields, green technology and emerging solutions, planning for community revitalization, and sustainability.
The Brownfields 2011 Planning Committee wants to encourage more interactive educational sessions such as marketplace/roundtable and the public dialogue/debate formats.
