Intersections 2016

Cross-disciplinary conference

Share This


Today’s challenges can’t be solved with singular approaches. They require holistic thinking for multiple impacts.

Intersections 2016 is a cross-disciplinary conference of quality of life, health, equity, development and environmental issues facing our growing region. It will be held November 10, 11 and 12, 2016, at the University of Houston Downtown.

The goal is to foster synergistic thinking and cross-disciplinary collaboration by bringing different movements together, and to demystify the mechanisms for creating sustainable change in the Houston area.

Through three days - with over 40 speakers, workshops, tours and interactive labs - attendees come to better understand the complexity of our challenges, the significance of their work in relation to others and the tools they have at their disposal to make solutions a reality.

This year, 50% of proceeds will be dedicated to Houston Tomorrow’s work hosting the Texas Children in Nature - Houston collaborative and the vision of nature every day for every child. Please help support our work to make Houston a greener, healthier, and better connected city and region.
