Energy and water are the world’s two most critical resources, yet their vital interconnections and vulnerabilities are less often recognized. Smart, resilient cities are tackling these connection points head on – metropolitan areas like Pittsburgh, known as the “city of three rivers.” Always a center for groundbreaking ideas – from the earliest days as the center for industry to the recently launched p4 Initiative and upcoming Climate Action Plan 3.0, Pittsburgh leads the country as a thriving hub of innovation, technology, education, environmental stewardship, and sustainability.
You’re invited to join the conversation with a gathering of national thought leaders and distinguished guests in discussing the issues and opportunities surrounding the Nexus of Energy and Water management, both nationally and in Pittsburgh. The evening event will feature a keynote speaker followed by insights from a panel of experts from around the country.
The event is free. Doors open at 4:45 pm.
