We are excited to announce our next Midwest Regional Sustainability Summit will take place on June 15, 2018, at Xavier University's Cintas Center. Mark your calendar to join us to deepen your understanding and expand your network.

In 2018, the Midwest Regional Sustainability Summit will continue to explore new and promising areas of environmental sustainability, while also taking a deeper look at the issue of resilience. We will explore how other regions across the nation are adapting to climate change and other environmental challenges and those in the process of creating resilient cities.

Highlights for this year’s Summit:

  • A keynote address by Katharine Hayhoe, a prominent climate scientist experienced in untangling the complex science and tackling many long-held misconceptions about global warming. Director of the Climate Science Center at Texas Tech University, Hayhoe’s current focus is on modeling regional to local impacts of climate change, and how we can fix this together using many of the solutions already in our backyard;
  • A plenary session featuring Katharine Hayhoe and Resilience Officers from cities included in the Rockefeller Foundation’s 100 Resilient Cities program;
  • A lunchtime awards ceremony honoring regional organizations who have successfully incorporated sustainability into their operations; and
  • Breakout sessions where attendees can dive deeper into issues such as energy, transportation, water quality, local food access, waste reduction, natural systems, and efforts to prepare our region for changes in climate and weather patterns.


Each year, we seek to widen the table for discussion around the issue of environmental sustainability. We bring together a broad audience of professionals who seek to engage in thoughtful discussion, share best practices, celebrate the work that is currently being done in sustainability throughout the Midwest and identify areas for future regional collaboration. We invite all who are interested to join us on June 15.
