Now in its 8th year, the Brownfield Coalition of the Northeast (BCONE) will be hosting the Northeast Sustainable Communities Workshop (NSCW) 2017 at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) in Newark, New Jersey on March 15, 2017.
The NSCW’s goal is to break new ground, offer new ideas, and posit new concepts on the topics of sustainability, collaboration and leverage, contamination, resiliency, brownfields, technology, and their impact on community revitalization.
Our past events have been attended by representatives from government, higher education, professional organizations, and laboratories, as well as attorneys, developers, contractors, and consultants.
This year’s theme is “Driving Revitalization Sustainably; identifying sustainable goals and strategies for revitalizing their communities and brownfields.”
NSCW is a unique event – PowerPoint presentations are sparse and image-only; speakers are concise, yet informative; and, there is plenty of time in each session for dialogue between attendees, speakers, and moderators. Come be a part of the conversation!
