A key component of Mayor Frank G. Jackson’s Sustainable Cleveland initiative is the annual summit. Now in its 10th year, the 2018 Sustainable Cleveland Summit will bring together more than 500 people to help design Cleveland’s sustainable future. The Summit provides an opportunity to work across sectors to strengthen existing initiatives, foster collaboration, and learn about recent innovations.

Each year we have a sustainability theme, with 2018 serving as the “Year of Vital Neighborhoods” in Cleveland. The 2018 Summit is also special because it is the last one before June 22, 2019 –the 50th anniversary of the infamous Cuyahoga River fire. 2018 is the Sustainable Cleveland Year of Vital Neighborhoods, and this year’s summit will build off past accomplishments to accelerate Cleveland’s positive momentum in developing healthy, vibrant and equitable communities.We look forward to welcoming two Summit keynote speakers this year, Chief Executive Officer with the US Water Alliance, Radhika Fox and founder of Outdoor Afro, Rue Mapp. Radhika Fox will present on day one of the Summit, with Rue Mapp presenting on day two.

The 2018 Summit presents a unique opportunity to crowdsource expertise to collectively: 

  • Neighborhood-level sustainability and equity;
  • Advancing the newly updated Cleveland Climate Action Plan;
  • Supporting businesses to tell their own sustainability story; and
  • Focusing on what we can accomplish by June 22, 2019, the 50-year anniversary of the infamous Cuyahoga River fire.

A recap of the 2017 Summit can be found here.
