Who We Are
Green Umbrella (GU) is partnering with the City of Cincinnati Office of Environment and Sustainability and the Department of Economic Inclusion, the Brueggeman Center for Dialogue at Xavier University, Hamilton County Planning and Development and the Greater Cincinnati Green Business Council to present a daylong conference to share the latest ideas and best practices in environmental sustainability on a regional level. This year’s Summit will look deeper at the issue of equity and its relationship to sustainability.
A key initiative of the City of Cincinnati’s Green Cincinnati Plan, the Midwest Regional Sustainability Summit inspires a collaborative culture of new thinking and unconventional ideas that pushes change in unexpected ways.
The 2017 Midwest Regional Sustainability Summit will convene stakeholders throughout the Ohio Valley region and adjoining areas to exchange best practices, provoke thoughtful discussion, celebrate the work that is currently being done throughout the Midwest and identify models for future regional collaboration that can be replicated throughout the United States. The Summit attracts participation from across the Midwest including Dayton, Louisville, Lexington, Cleveland, Columbus and Indianapolis.
From Fortune 100 powerhouses to innovative small businesses, government agencies, academia and NGOs, the event brings together today’s regional mayors, sustainability directors, leading green companies, small business enterprises and visionaries.
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 9 and be ready to deepen your understanding and expand your network.
