Join us at the 12th Annual Leadership Summit on Sustainable Design hosted by the Design Futures Council.
The DFC Leadership Summit on Sustainable Design remains a highlight in the professional development schedule for leading executives in the A/E/C industry. This one-of-a-kind gathering inspires leaders to re-examine their leadership priorities and establish new action plans as we strive to broaden traditional definitions of sustainable design beyond the concerns of individual buildings.
Since the establishment of the DFC’s Nantucket Principles at the first Leadership Summit on Sustainable Design in 2002, this conference has sought to redefine our collective conscience. We look toward expanding the view of the client to include tomorrow’s child and increase our awareness of the full short- and long-term consequences of transformations to the environment.
Bringing together 100 executive leaders from the A/E/C industry and dynamic speakers from around the world, this Summit provides a new platform for leadership as we engage and challenge today’s limiting beliefs.
The upcoming Summit will be held in Minneapolis, MN at the Marquette Hotel.
