The Mayor’s Office of Sustainability, Philadelphia Water, and the Urban Sustainability Directors Network hosted a first-of-its kind convening of practitioners working in GSI from across the United States and Canada. The event included leaders from over 45 municipalities, who gathered at the Franklin Institute from September 16-18 “to highlight best practices, share strategies, and discuss future opportunities for cities to collaborate.”

We were proud to be in attendance with these leaders, inspired to learn more about GSI happenings in jurisdictions across the country, and grateful for opportunities to explore collaborations.  We look forward to continuing to build on relationships formed over the 3-day conference, and to future convenings.
