Public and private sector pioneers are coming together to address issues related to sustainability, resiliency and economic growth. These challenges include energy reduction, water conservation, smart growth patterns, emissions and rising sea levels. Understanding these issues will help in the preparation for an uncertain future.

Various municipalities, private developers and organizations, such as the Stamford 2030 District, are creating plans to make our cities leaders in sustainability and resiliency. These plans include investing private funding in sustainable buildings and transit-oriented development; responding to stormwater quality and volume challenges; and increasing the community and local economy's resilience to climate change.

Hear from developers, Stamford’s stormwater manager, and a board member of the Stamford 2030 District about the exciting initiatives taking place along Connecticut's coast.
