In October 2017, the first annual Sustainable Detroit Forum was convened at Wayne State University's McGregor Memorial Conference Center. This event was designed to connect and cross-fertilize the sustainability communities of Detroit. This October, the Sustainable Detroit Forum will return to Wayne State University, for an even bigger and better event than last year!
When: Wed., October 24, 9 a.m.–4 p.m.
Where: Wayne State Student Center, 5221 Gullen Mall, Detroit, Michigan 48202
The day will be anchored by a series of presentations on Detroit-based projects rooted in sustainability, designed to maximize your exposure to a wide range of topics. These presentations will be accompanied by keynote speakers, vendor displays (last year included everything from edible bugs to virtual reality), and plenty of time to learn more about the presentations and to meet with friends and colleagues.
Call for presentations
If you or someone you know has a project or story they'd be interested in sharing at the forum, we are now officially accepting applications for presenters.
2017 Sustainable Detroit Forum success stories
We heard from many of you after last year's Sustainable Detroit Forum about the people you met, the connections you made and the projects you learned about. Over the past year, we have continued to hear about how you became involved in projects you learned about at the forum, or how your made lasting relationships as a result of your experience there.
We would love to use these success stories to encourage people to attend this year's Sustainable Detroit Forum. We're so excited to hear from you that we will be raffling off a free ticket to this year's forum from all those who submit them to us. So, let us know how the forum affected your life or your community in a positive way, and we'll look forward to seeing you soon for another exciting event. Stories must be submitted by September 7.
