The Midwest Regional Sustainability Summit is a platform to share resources and solutions within a regional economy and connect a variety of groups working towards similar goals. The next Summit will take place on Friday, June 9, 2017 at Xavier University's Cintas Center. Please visit MidwestSustainabilitySummit.org for more information.
In 2017, the Midwest Regional Sustainability Summit will explore new and promising areas of environmental sustainability, while also taking a deeper look at the issue of equity. We explore why equity is often overlooked in the discussion around sustainability, and the ways in which new economic opportunities can be pursued that are both socially and environmentally just. To underscore this point, the keynote speaker this year is Van Jones. Jones is, among many things, a leader working to build an equitable green economy. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in linking the economy, the environment and social justice, notably through initiatives he has founded such as The Dream Corps, Green for All and Rebuild the Dream.
Featuring keynote address from Van Jones, a globally recognized, award-winning leader in the green economy and best-selling author of the definitive book on green jobs, The Green Collar Economy: How One Solution Can Fix Our Two Biggest Problems.
