The 1st Annual Sustainable Detroit Forum

USGBC Detroit Region is pleased to announce its first annual Sustainable Detroit Forum, "Showcasing our Healthy High-Performance City." The event will take place on October 25, 2017, from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the McGregor Memorial Conference Center at Wayne State University,

Our first forum is designed to connect and cross-fertilize the sustainability communities of Detroit. The full-day event is being organized in partnership with a number of other nonprofits with green and sustainable missions, including:

  • American Institute of Architects—Detroit Chapter
  • Sierra Club
  • Southeast Michigan Sustainable Business Forum
  • EcoWorks / Youth Energy Squad
  • Elevate Energy
  • Michigan Interfaith Power and Light

The event offers a day of interactive learning, with morning and lunch keynotes followed by short presentations of projects brought to the event by nonprofit partners. These 10- to 15-minute, lightning-fast presentations of both completed and planned projects will form the bulk of the sessions, allowing as many people as possible to share their sustainability vision and actions.
