2017 Sustainable Cleveland Summit
September 27th & 28th, 2017 at Cleveland Public Auditorium
Save the date for the 9th annual Sustainable Cleveland Summit, September 27th & 28th, 2017. The Summit brings together Clevelanders from all walks of life and provides a unique opportunity to work across sectors, foster collaboration, learn about recent innovations, and design the future of the Cleveland region.
The 2016 Sustainable Cleveland Summit focused on the Year of Sustainable Transportation and advancing the Cleveland Climate Action Plan. Keynote speaker Gil Penalosa, founder of 8 80 Cities, provided an exciting presentation on using enhanced mobility and public space to bring residents together and create more vibrant, healthy, and equitable communities.
2017 is the Sustainable Cleveland Year of Vibrant Green Space, and this year’s Summit will build off past accomplishments and accelerate Cleveland’s positive momentum in developing healthy, vibrant, and equitable communities. We define Vibrant Green Space as an accessible and active public space that benefits all and connects people to place, nature and one another.
The 2017 Summit will also present a unique opportunity to crowdsource expertise from more than 500 participants as we collectively update the Cleveland Climate Action Plan, which incorporates the topics of: Energy, Water and Land Use, Community Engagement, Waste, and Transportation. Specifically, how can we accelerate progress in climate action that also advances equitable outcomes in health, access to green jobs, resiliency, and more?
We hope you can join us on September 27th & 28th, 2017 at Cleveland Public Auditorium to continue transforming Cleveland into a Thriving Green City on a Blue Lake
