The Future City

03/09/2017 - 10:30 to 12:00
10:30 am to 12:00 pm

This facilitated conversation is on the future city and its impact on the practice of NESEA thinkers and practitioners. Historically, BuildingEnergy has focused on isolated parts – the building or a renewable energy installation.  This session will address the whole place like a city or village and what can be done to improve energy efficiency and connectivity among people by integrating all of the parts.

We begin with a short presentation on future city practices such as: the building as a self-contained ecosystem; using big data to create smart cities; managing density; water conservation; developing whole neighborhoods with a soul and sense of place. The rest of the session: working on issues that matter to you.  We will end with identifying and declaring what you most want to work on back home.
