Building Sustainable Communities by Strengthening International Networks

  A sustainable community is the goal of meeting the needs of current and future generations through environmental, social, cultural and economic prosperity.  There are many parts to fully achieving such a goal including strengthening local community governance, developing much needed human capital and balancing social and economic goals.   Internationally we can learn from each other by strengthening our internal networks.  We can share best practices and call upon each other to discuss new strategies that address similar issues.  We can also find a way to open the economic door and further promote indigenous trade.  

Lead Sponsor

It has come to our attention that a firm is contacting conference participants and exhibitors and offering to make hotel reservations. They ask you to complete their form and to provide credit information. Please note that this is fraud we are NOT affiliated with this organization. We strongly recommend that you not engage with them and that you do not provide them with any of your information. If you would like to make a hotel reservation for the conference, please visit the accommodation page for information.
