CBI's 20th Anniversary Symposium: Who Gets What On Our Shrinking Planet? provided a unique opportunity to bring together a diverse set of individuals to think through the next twenty years of challenges, to engage with new technologies, to honor colleagues, and to make some exciting announcements.

The CBI Global Network

Following our 20th Anniversary Symposium in April 2014, CBI convened and hosted the first gathering of The CBI Global Network. The Network is a community of leading practitioners and scholars - spanning the Americas, Africa, Europe and Asia - who come together to work on collaborative approaches to sustainable development challenges. 

Lawrence Susskind Fellowship in Consensus Building 

To honor the lifelong work of CBI’s Founder Lawrence Susskind, we announced the creation of a one-year supported fellowship, awarded to an outstanding graduate student pursuing a Masters, Law, or Doctoral degree with a focus on public issues, preferably related to the built or natural environment, or the general substantive areas where CBI works.
