    10th Annual Sustainable Cleveland Summit

    Now in its 10th year, the 2018 Sustainable Cleveland Summit will bring together more than 500 people to help design Cleveland's sustainable future. The Summit provides an opportunity to work across sectors to strengthen existing initiatives, foster collaboration, and learn about recent innovations.

    Each year we have a sustainability theme, with 2018 serving as the “Year of Vital Neighborhoods” in Cleveland. The 2018 Summit is also special because it is the last one before June 22, 2019 – the 50th anniversary of the infamous Cuyahoga River fire.

    The 2018 Summit goals include:
    · Keynote presentations and awards focused on neighborhood-level sustainability and equity;
    · Celebrating next year’s culmination of Sustainable Cleveland 2019 and 50 years of progress since the fire;
    · Supporting businesses to tell their own sustainability story in 2019; and
    · Advancing the newly updated Cleveland Climate Action Plan in 2019 and beyond.

    We hope to see you there!

    • Tools and inspiration to drive forward systemic change, echoing activists in abolition, suffrage, and Civil Rights
