It is through collaboration that we can make an impact that is greater than any one of us could achieve alone. In this spirit, the TNOC Summit is altogether a new creation. The TNOC Summit is where thought leaders, from communities of practice, policy, and academia come together in a truly integrated and collaborative event to think, learn, create and build in interactive sessions. The key goal of the TNOC Summit is to spark conversations that build a movement – a new collaborative movement for green cities that are just, livable, resilient, and sustainable. Thematic Drivers
