Meeting of the Minds 2015 will take place on October 20-22, 2015 in Richmond, California.
Since it was founded, Meeting of the Minds has been dedicated to a singular proposition: bring together a carefully chosen set of key urban sustainability and technology stakeholders and gather them around a common platform in ways that help build lasting alliances. We believe that such a platform is a vital ingredient for smart, sustainable and equitable urban (re)development strategies.
Meeting of the Minds focuses on the people and initiatives at the bleeding edge of urban innovation. Through our blog, magazine, webinars, monthly meetups, workshops, roundtables, and our annual summit held each fall, we invite international leaders from the public, private, non-profit, academic and philanthropic sectors to identify innovations that can be scaled, replicated and transferred from city-to-city and sector-to-sector.
Among the thousands of international leaders who participate in the Meeting of the Minds network are innovators scaling-up practical urban solutions in infrastructure, policy, design, equity, technology, energy, mobility, water, finance, and more.
Now in its 9th year, our annual summit brings together 400+ opinion-shapers, policy-makers, leading thinkers and innovators from all over the world for two and half days of intensive immersion in thought leadership and cross-sector development. Gathered together, they will have unique opportunities to think critically, ask questions, share tools, and build lasting partnerships — which make smarter and more sustainable cities possible.
