SUSTAINABILITY SPEAKER SERIES  

Coming 2021!  
 
EcoSpex in collaboration with The Institute of Southern Georgian Bay are developing a regional Sustainability Speaker Series - GET INSPIRED, GET INFORMED, TAKE ACTION 

The speaker series is organized around the theme of creating healthy, and sustainable vibrant communities. The goal is to create awareness of, and generate discussion about, what makes a vibrant sustainable community; to encourage people to learn about their community and get engaged in change. 

The speaker series will develop action-oriented initiatives targeting issues that support current gaps in the regions. A series of themes, topics, case studies will be assessed to support a broader review of sustainability initiatives. Speakers would involve developers, municipalities, counties, not-for-profit, planners, builders, universities, NGOs and other private sector, and philanthropists that have proven projects, frameworks, plans etc. 

Monthly discussions for the Speaker Series would be established based upon themes capturing requirements for our regional audience and a lively discussion for all participants. 

Are you a professional? If so, we are seeking experts to help deliver inspiring presentations.
