Meet us in Minneapolis

for the 2015 Annual Sustainable City Year Conference!

The Sustainable Cities Initiative will hold a three-day conference, April 12-14, 2015, for university representatives, city officials, and organizational partners who are interested in adopting and adapting the Sustainable City Year Program (SCYP) model to their home institutions and community contexts.

After three years of hosting the conference at the University of Oregon campus in Eugene, this year's event will take place at the University of Minnesota and will be hosted by UMN's Resilient Communities Project (RCP). RCP launched their program after attending the first SCYP conference in 2012. 

The conference and workshop is highly engaging, interactive, and participatory and will help attendees get from the big idea to implementation techniques. Special capacity building and peer to peer learning sessions for currently running SCYP programs will also be included.
