In 2020, the Midwest Regional Sustainability Summit will continue to explore new and promising areas of environmental sustainability by focusing on Cities of the Future: Becoming a Regenerative Region. Collectively, we will imagine how cities can become regenerative hubs that enhance rather than deplete our natural resources, promote a vibrant, resilient built environment and support healthy, equitable communities. By examining innovative strategies to link rural, urban and suburban communities, we can identify new opportunities to build regions that are both socially and environmentally resilient.
