Some innovate. Some adapt. The unsuccessful do neither. We hope to sustain, improve and anticipate the needs of the places and the people who benefit from our work. To EVOLVE.
Speakers and sessions will explore this journey – where we started, how we grew and where we are going as planners and community champions. Because, if we don’t learn from the past, we can’t prepare for the future.
Join us in Cleveland this fall for a historic event.

Celebrating 10 Years. Building the Future.
Since 2009, Mayor Frank G. Jackson’s Sustainable Cleveland 2019(SC2019) initiative has engaged more than 15,000 people from all walks of life, working together to design and develop a thriving and resilient Cleveland region. Over the past ten years, SC2019 has supported collaboration and action to make Cleveland a greener, cleaner place to live, work, and play for all. From improved water and air quality to increases in bike infrastructure and clean energy, SC2019 has come a long way... but we know there's much work to do.
We invite you to celebrate the culmination of SC2019, honor the many people and organizations that have gotten us this far, and build off this foundation for even greater progress. The one-day Summit will go from 8am-5pm on October 16th, followed by an evening reception. The Summit will include remarks from Mayor Frank Jackson, keynote presentations, recognition and awards, facilitated discussions on key priorities going forward, and much more. Through the 2019 Summit we will:
- Celebrate Cleveland’s progress in sustainability since 2009
- Share stories of collaboration and action inspired through the SC2019 initiative
- Recognize individuals, organizations, and businesses leading by example to advance sustainability in Cleveland
- Feature keynote presentations focused on creating a more sustainable and equitable economy
- Advance Cleveland Climate Action Plan priorities that require community-wide action, such as reaching 100% renewable electricity, trees, access to vibrant green space, sustainable transportation, clean water, and creating a circular economy
- Chart a path forward for continued engagement in sustainability and climate action beyond 2019
We thank the Summit sponsors not only for making this event possible, but for being critical partners in sustainability. For more information visit www.SustainableCleveland.org/Summit2019
