Bridges to
Smart Growth

Opening its Golden Gate, the New Partners for Smart Growth Conference returns to California in 2018.

The city of San Francisco is 47 square miles of innovation – an incubator for new ways to solve old problems, a living laboratory for environmental and economic sustainability. As old as the Declaration of Independence, San Francisco is a blueprint for the future. It remains today the world’s leading breeding ground for game-changing ideas and amazing technologies that reimagine the way we live and communicate, and preserve the best aspects of our world. A pioneer in the recycling movement, it continues as a national leader in the full spectrum of local sustainability practices.

Connecting
Leaders

A significant factor in this event’s tremendous success is its appeal to leaders from so many different disciplines.

The conference will draw a national audience of local elected officials and city and county staff; state and federal agency leaders; professionals in planning, transportation, public health, landscape architecture, architecture, public works, parks and recreation, and crime prevention and the arts; realtors, developers, builders and bankers; advocates for equity and environmental justice, youth, older adults, and walking and biking; labor representatives; school leaders and staff; environmentalists; and all others committed to building safer, healthier and more livable communities everywhere.
