The National Council for Science and the Environment works with scientists, educators, policymakers, business leaders, and officials at all levels of government to inform environmental policy and decision-making with the use of science. NCSE programs are designed to foster leadership and education around timely and pressing issues at the intersection of science, policy, education, and decision-making. The programs also advance interdisciplinary education and develop international cooperation and engagement.

Each year the NCSE Annual Conference brings together over 700 educators, researchers, students, policy-makers, government officials,business leaders and representatives from civil society. The event is an unique opportunity to gain insight into the latest trends and practices in environmental science and decision-making as well as to network with peers, make new connections, and meet today’s and tomorrow’s environmental leaders.

More than 35 concurrent sessions will be presented by your colleagues covering a variety of topics. We encourage you to view this year’s program 

SUSTAINABLE INFRASTRUCTURE & RESILIENCE

No part of the planet is untouched by the impact of the more than seven billion human inhabitants. Collectively, we face pressing challenges such as extreme weather from climate change, growing urbanization, and resource scarcity. These challenges make cities and ecosystems more vulnerable; triggering an urgent call to develop a sustainable, healthy, and just world. At the 2019 Annual Conference, attendees will look at the opportunities and challenges for sustainability at the convergence of built, natural, social, and cyber infrastructure. Attendees will also explore examples of community resilience and discuss how to apply best practices in their community. More about the theme.
