First Annual Sustainable Detroit Forum, USGBC Detroit Region, October 25, 9am -3:30pm
Event Description

The U.S. Green Building Council Detroit Region is pleased to present an event designed to connect and cross-fertilize the sustainability communities of Detroit. The 1-day event is titled - The Sustainable Detroit Forum, Showcasing our Healthy High-Performance City - and is being organized in partnership with a number of other non-profits with green and sustainable missions, including: American Institute of Architects, Sierra Club, Southeast Michigan Sustainable Business Forum, EcoWorks/Youth Energy Squad, Elevate Energy, and Michigan Interfaith Power and Light.

The event will provide a day of interactive learning with morning and lunch keynotes followed by a series of short presentation of sustainable projects. These 10-15 minute Lightning Rapid Fire Presentations of completed/ongoing/future projects form the bulk of the sessions, allowing as many people as possible to share their sustainability actions and visions. Acoustic musicians will also be a part of the program, providing interludes and inspirational breaks. An innovative Green Mall will also feature green technologies and services.

Detroit has many exciting sustainability initiatives from the neighborhoods to Midtown and downtown, and this event will bring them all together for a day of sharing, learning and connecting. Let’s bring the sustainability conversation forward in Detroit together!

A limited number of scholarships are available. Contact Emile lauzzana for more information:
