Taking A Closer Look At Green: The Sustainable Authentic Conference

September 25, 2013

Attend the Sustainable Authentic Conference, October 23-25, 2013 in Miami Beach.

The conference will bring together leaders from Greater Miami and throughout Florida to examine the work in preservation/conservation, arts and culture, green building/sustainability practices, economic development and quality of life. 

Conference themes include:

      • How has the 35-year-old story of creatively inspired economic renewal of Miami Beach influenced the Miami mainland and elsewhere in Florida?
        • What becomes the metro Miami narrative when viewed through 2,000 years of history from the Miami Circle to Art Basel?
          • At a time when Florida’s main markets for tourism and investment grow increasingly urban, place-focused and creative driven, how might urban Florida better tell its own authentic story?

      Also, please be sure to check out the session titled:
