According to a recent Nielsen study, three out of four millennials who responded to a survey indicated they were willing to pay more for sustainable products. As we become the torch bearers to continue the renaissance of Des Moines, it's important that we get a better understanding of how we can make an impact on our environment.

"Next: Your Environment" is presented by Young Professionals Connection (YPC) of Greater Des Moines in partnership with Juice and Bankers Trust. The Next Series endeavors to engage young professionals in conversations that will help them advance personally and professionally. It aims to provide skills and knowledge to help them move seamlessly and successfully into the next phase of their lives and careers.

If you are not a USGBC Iowa individual member and are interested in attending, please visit the YPC event page.
