Grady Gammage, Jr. To Discuss New Book At SusTech 2016

grady-gamage-jr_photoPhoenix, AZ.  Grady Gammage, Jr. is one of the featured keynote speakers at the upcoming SusTech 2016 Conference on Technologies Driving Sustainability on October 9-11, 2016 at the Phoenix Airport Marriott, 1101 North 44th Street, Phoenix, Arizona 85008, USA.

 Gammage, a part time academic, a practicing lawyer, an author, a sometime real estate developer and a former elected official, has indicated that he plans to share insights from his latest book, The Future of the Suburban City: Lessons from Sustaining Phoenix. A key question that will be raised with the audience is whether or not the urban form of the City of Phoenix, or post-war American cities like it, is sustainable?  Water as a resource, commodity and threatened asset is one of several issues that will be included in his discussion.

His talk is scheduled for Monday, October 10, 2016, during the dinner program beginning at 6:30 p.m.

Gammage is also the author of the book, Phoenix in Perspective, numerous articles on land use and growth issues, and coauthor of Watering the Sun Corridor: Managing Choices in Arizona’s Megapolitan Area — a report published by the Morrison Institute for Public Policy at Arizona State University.

Other keynote speakers in Monday’s program are Mark Goldstein, President, International Research Center, Opening Keynote: Internet of Things – Transformative Megatrends for Sustainability, and Karin Harris, President, eGreen-IT Solutions, LLC, Lunch Keynote: Navigating the Challenges Created by Constant Innovation in the Used Electronics Industry.
