Now in its 7th year, the Brownfield Coalition of the Northeast (BCONE) will be hosting the Northeast Sustainable Communities Workshop (NSCW) 2016 at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) in Newark, New Jersey on March 16, 2016.
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, community groups, higher education, professional organizations, and laboratories, as well as attorneys, developers, contractors, and consultants.
This year’s theme is “Imagination and Creativity in Urban Change for the NJ/NY/CT/PA Metropolitan Area.” NSCW is like no other conference you’ve attended. PowerPoint presentations are sparse and image-only; speakers are concise, yet informative; and, there is plenty of time in each session for dialogue, challenges, and questions between attendees, speakers, and moderators. Come be a part of the conversation.
As always, those in the center of these policy decisions speak in panel format that includes representatives from all states in the region. Everyone who attends NSCW Impact is an active participant in shaping the ideas, projects, and policies that will guide the revitalization and redevelopment of our region- CT, NY, NJ, and PA- for years to come. The impact of the day is to have everyone leave more knowledgeable, more committed, and more inspired to influence the changes necessary in our professional and personal lives to create a more enduring and resilient life working with, and not against, nature.
