The Summit features sustainability thought leaders from industry and academia.
      Half of the world population and three-quarters of all large cities are located on the coast. 634 million people are at risk from rising water levels. That is only one example of the variety of challenges coastal cities face, effecting policies, businesses, entrepreneurs, research and human well-being. How will our world landscapes change as a result? New York City, Shanghai, Sydney, Rio de Janeiro—many coastal cities are nexuses for the global economy.
      The conference will defy traditional notions of urban development to ask how coastal cities can sustain themselves and continue to grow as the climate changes and their local environments deteriorate. Register now to learn what the future holds for these cities, what complex problems and exciting solutions exist and what they mean to you and the work you do, and how you can help overcome them to build sustainable coastal cities.

A systems approach to the social determinants of health opens up entrepreneurial opportunities and new investment frameworks that can drastically reduce healthcare costs and improve lives.
      Join us for a cross-sector view into what creates health in our society, and where new market opportunities exist. This conversation will explore frameworks and look holistically at health systems, social systems and solutions that generate wellbeing in communities. See how incentives can be better aligned to drive outcomes through case studies of organizations that are leading the field and creating the outcomes we seek. Position yourself in the ecosystem as we create the market that values health.

      Impact Investing Conference – “The Risk of Inaction”

      Impact investing exacts financial returns and produces social and environmental rewards. It catalyzes opportunities and reduces the adversities caused by a growing global population and a planet sacked by climate change.
      Increasingly investors have become aware that externalities such as water scarcity, such as pollution, such as extreme weather events, or unfair labor practices do indeed affect their portfolios’ internal rates of return. By positioning investments toward positive impacts, risks can be reduced and rewards can be furnished across both the financial and social /environmental spectrums.
