This unprecedented one-day Symposium will rethink the future stage in the steadily evolving field sustainable construction education and research in NYS, the SUNY system and elsewhere.

Forward-thinking stakeholders who are concerned about the impacts of sustainability on construction are invited to join this collaborative effort and initiate a series of dialogues for the needs of the education, research, and scholarly cutting-edge state of sustainable construction. The Symposium will cover a wide range of the current practices as a launching pad for the process of answering the many questions about sustainability in the context of construction instruction, research, and scholarly endeavors, stimulating a pragmatic approach to the various scales of the future supporting concepts and themes.

To accommodate effective discussions and interactions, the one-day Symposium is organized and will be conducted with priority given to maximize motivating and stimulating key dialogues among the participants that will push forward the state of academic sustainable construction.

At the conclusion of the conversation, a summary of the outcomes will provide a planning roadmap laying out the steps needed to produce the next generation of sustainable construction curricula and research.

This program is sponsored by a 2007-2008 SUNY Conversations in the Disciplines grant.
