Environment, Infrastructure, and Transportation Track

Environmental protections and healthy economic development don’t have to be at odds. There is a balance. We’ll help you find it, design for it, and deliver it. You’ll pull from existing theory and historical trends to develop your own frameworks for understanding and assessing the cultural values and institutional contexts at play in the give-and- take of environmentally-conscious development. What’s more, we’ll help you figure out how to engage public interest for long-term, community-supported impact.
