NSF Workshop

Enabling and Sustaining Connected Communities Rooted in Solving Societal Challenges

On February 6-7, 2023, Metro21 hosted participants from across the country for an invite-only workshop to discuss the need to address multiple societal challenges such as mobility and access, energy efficiency, and provision of ecosystem services.

Invitees represented local government and researchers interested in building connected communities that can be sustained, as well as potential funders of such efforts, including non-profit foundations and federal government agencies.  

The workshop was made possible by a generous grant from the National Science Foundation.
