Geodesign Summit 2017

Redlands, CA, August 11, 2016 — Esri's annual Geodesign Summit will continue the conversation around a holistic approach to building smarter communities. Attendees include planning professionals across all levels of government, commercial firms, academia, and nongovernmental organizations that want to learn how to prepare for geodesign and support their agencies well into the future.

"The Geodesign Summit will be an exciting opportunity to witness how geodesign and other innovative techniques and technologies are bringing energy and new ideas to planning and related disciplines," said James Drinan, executive director of the American Planning Association (APA).

It is becoming increasingly clear that we have to change the way we build and design our communities. Geodesign was introduced as a concept to change our approach to planning. If we are going to continue this effort to build smart, livable, and resilient communities, we need to reexamine our assumptions about what it means to plan for a rapidly evolving world.

Seating is limited. Do not miss this opportunity to be part of this movement.
