Gene Miller talks to Communities in Transition about Resilient Cities – the 2009 Gaining Ground summit GGRC09

The Gaining Ground Conference, which debuted in Vancouver, 2009, is targeted to practitioners and advocates across a range of fields working to advance and accelerate urban sustainability—in Vancouver and North America. The 2009 conference established a solid legacy of accomplishment—almost one hundred partner organizations; a great platform for Mayor Gregor Robertson and the Greenest City Action Team; and, between the core conference and its shoulder program, almost two thousand participants. By integrating a core conference program and a shoulder program spanning the interests of business, policy, professional practice, education and public engagement, Gaining Ground began last year to shift the conventional definition of ‘conference.’
