The eighth annual MAS Summit for New York City returns on Monday, October 16, at The Morgan Library & Museum

Change has always been a defining feature of our city—but today it is felt with a heightened sense of alarm. With the overarching threat of climate change, and increasing strain on basic needs such as infrastructure and housing, communities are experiencing enormous pressure. As we push the limits of our physical and financial means, we must also push the limits of conventional thinking. This year's Summit will explore ambitious, creative ways to meet these great challenges from the ground up.
