Every year, Mayor Frank G. Jackson convenes nearly 600 community and business leaders, government officials, students, representatives of our labor force, and residents for an Annual Sustainable Cleveland Summit. At the Summit, we work to develop action steps to help transform Cleveland into a global leader in sustainability by the year 2019. The Summit is also an opportunity to report on our collective efforts and progress.
Please join Sustainable Cleveland at the 9th Annual Sustainable Cleveland Summit, September 27 and 28, 2017, at Public Auditorium (500 Lakeside Ave.). You can register for both days or either Day 1 or Day 2. The Summit will open Wednesday, September 27th at 2:00pm with a remarks from Mayor Jackson, an update on the State of Sustainability, a facilitated discussion, and a Summit keynote from Mark Tercek, CEO of the Nature Conservancy. The reception begins at 5:30p.m.
Day two of the Summit will be a full day of visioning, design and action planning centered on:
- The current and upcoming celebration year topics of Vibrant Green Space and Vital Neighborhoods.
- Advancing the Cleveland Climate Action Plan, which incorporates the topics of: Renewable Energy, Local Foods, Energy Efficiency, Zero Waste, Clean Water, Vital Neighborhoods, and Engaged People.
- Focusing on what we can accomplish by June 22, 2019, the 50-year anniversary of the infamous Cuyahoga River fire.
