The 1st Annual Sustainable Detroit Forum
Showcasing our Healthy High-Performance City
October 25th, 2017 9:00 am – 3:30 pm at the
McGregor Memorial Conference Center at Wayne State University
In the fall of 2017, the USGBC Detroit Region is organizing 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 – Detroit Chapter
- Sierra Club
- Southeast Michigan Sustainable Business Forum
- EcoWorks / Youth Energy Squad
- Elevate Energy
- Michigan Interfaith Power and Light
The event envisions a day of interactive learning with morning and lunch keynotes followed by a series of short presentation of projects brought to the event by non-profit partners. 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.
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!
