On May 12, 2023, Green Umbrella will host the 10th Midwest Regional Sustainability Summit at the Duke Energy Convention Center in Cincinnati, Ohio


Our 2023 theme invites us to come together in collective hope and renewed resilience amidst the climate crisis. We hope this conference can be a spark for connecting, learning together, deepening our resolve, and joyously finding our places in the mighty “we” rising to secure a just and livable future.

We hope you'll join us as we imagine visionary and inspiring possibilities that inform, empower, and motivate our actions to create a more vibrant, equitable, and thriving region. With the pressure to address the climate crisis with increased urgency, it is natural to feel climate anxiety and grief. How can we acknowledge the challenges we face while moving beyond perceived limitations to find optimism and active hope? What kind of world is possible if we get this right?

Our 2023 keynote speaker, Dr. Katharine Wilkinson, is a bestselling author, strategist, and teacher, working to heal the planet we call home. Her books include the anthology All We Can Save, The Drawdown Review, Drawdown, and Between God & Green. She leads The All We Can Save Project and co-hosts the podcast A Matter of Degrees. Her TED Talk on climate and gender equality has nearly 2 million views, and she has been featured by Time magazine as one of 15 women who will save the world.


Possibility at the Local, Regional, and National Levels

This year's plenary will dig deep into climate justice action and possibility at the neighborhood, metro, and national levels. Three prominent sustainability leaders from the National League of Cities, Hoosier Environmental Council, and Metropolitan Mayors Caucus, will join our keynote speaker and share key insights into how neighborhood-level action can support more resilient metro-regions, how regional action can support a more resilient nation, and how national action can support neighborhoods and regions across the Midwest. We'll explore what's possible when each of these levels align and work together to make a transformative impact.


The Midwest Regional Sustainability Summit brings together hundreds of passionate and visionary leaders to share inspiring, forward-thinking, and solution-oriented ideas that propel us toward a healthier, more resilient, sustainable, and equitable future. Join Fortune 500 powerhouses, innovative entrepreneurs, government officials, sustainability directors, academic, non-profit and community leaders, and passionate residents committed to solving some of the region’s toughest environmental problems while creating a positive economic impact.

The conference will feature:

  • 80+ Speakers
  • 20 Breakout Sessions
