DFC Leadership Summit
on the
FUTURE of Environmental Responsibility

SEPTEMBER 9 & 10, 2019 • MINNEAPOLIS, MN

DesignIntelligence

Since the crusade began to create a more sustainable built environment, our efforts as an industry have gradually become diluted by unhealthy and unproductive forces. Greenwashing, divisive political rhetoric, and well-meaning but misdirected activism have undercut real accomplishments. Yet the need to be successful is more urgent than ever.

As leaders in A/E/C, we are called to re-ground our efforts in substance, giving them a foundational spine that gives the movement ongoing vitality, ensures effectiveness we can measure, and allows us to move past rhetoric to meaningful execution.

The Design Futures Council Leadership Summit on the FUTURE of Environmental Responsibility will gather leading thinkers both within and outside the industry to consider a new context through which we establish our collective work towards environmental responsibility.
