What SSI-3 Is All About
Over two days in April, 2019, the Colorado Chapters of the American Society for Civil Engineers, the American Public Works Association, the American Planning Association, and University of Colorado Denver, convened the third Symposium for Sustainable Infrastructure (SSI-3). For this year's event, we wanted to focus on visionary thinking. With the title “The Cities We Have, The Cities We Want,” the program consisted of a series of sessions that address how cities have evolved through the work of engineers and planners. We began the symposium by understanding existing paradigms in the cities we have and finished with a discussion on a path forward for engineering and planning to achieve the cities we want. We had a tremendous lineup of speakers who presented these topics in an “ignite” and panel format (see presentations below). We also had two engaging and visionary keynotes delivered by Ron Sims, former HUD Deputy Secretary, and Leah Treat, Managing Director at Nelson/Nygaard.
