Regional leaders will discuss sustainable ideas and solutions. This year’s theme, Feeding the Economy, will focus on building strong economies and communities using sustainable practices. In addition to  fantastic morning and lunch keynote speakers, excellent breakout sessions are scheduled throughout the day - covering energy, active transportation, water and air quality, materials management, insight2050, local food, and policy issues.


For example, in the morning, listen to panelists discuss policy solutions addressing emerging sustainability issues, or learn about the economic impacts of recycling and reducing waste..

Later in the afternoon, hear from innovative local leaders in the food industry who are committed to conserving energy while fostering the development of the local economy, or learn from trail experts on the development of key trails in the region.
