About nine months ago the City was asked if we would be interested in joining with Davey Tree, Kent State, Ron Burbick, Fairmount Properties, and PARTA to co-sponsor a regional sustainability conference in Kent around Earth Day 2015.
With an all star list of partners, and a commitment to sustainability that runs deep in Kent’s DNA, we said “count us in.”
We’re always game to show off downtown Kent and we’ve got some great examples of sustainability right here in our own backyard so we thought this would be a great chance to showcase the greener side of Kent to sustainability-minded people from all over northeast Ohio.
Plus, bringing a conference center full of people together to talk sustainability is a great way to inspire more ideas and generate more momentum to keep the sustainability ball rolling in Kent.
The Kent Greentown conference web site is officially up and taking registrations. I hope you’ll think about signing up and joining us.
