    Advancing Sustainability Symposium 2012

    AS Symposium Sep 4 '12 1

    After a highly successful Advancing Sustainability: Business + Design Symposium in October of 2011, students from Woodbury University have gathered once again in order to prepare their second annual event. The topic of this year focuses on the "cardiovascular system" of a city—its infrastructure. The discussion will investigate how various infrastructures—providers of core operational supply (transportation systems, energy and water supply, communications, built environment)—perform, exchange, and are incorporated into the natural environment. With speakers such as Charles Renfro, opportunities for networking and a panel discussion, this year's symposium will not only be focused on learning about sustainability, but also understanding  the basic components that are necessary in creating a sustainable city and examples of existing or developing projects.
    When speaking about sustainability, the most important question is what is being done, and what is being developed in the world around us. During the course of the event, each individual will gain a new perspective of the subject of sustainability due to conversations with people of various disciplinary backgrounds. Since we invite active individuals of all disciplinary backgrounds who strive for innovation and change toward more efficient, cleaner and healthier environment, the guests participating in the event will have the opportunity to converse with one another and gain an understanding of other disciplines and their methods for producing a sustainable outcome.
    The students involved in the creation of this event have dedicated an abundance of time into providing not only themselves, but other students and professionals with the possibility of gaining new knowledge, creating new contacts and most importantly moving toward an innovative future that will create a more efficient, cleaner and healthier environment.
