Event Details

About the conference

The annual Michigan Green Communities conference showcases homegrown best practices through a series of presentations from local government and university representatives from around Michigan. This event is an opportunity for our diverse membership to come together to network and share ideas and resources related to sustainability at the local government level.

This year, the conference presentations will emphasize themes of climate resiliancy and collaboration. The first day will focus on statewide participation and peer-to-peer learning, highlighting examples with Flint projects. Presentation categories including administration and planning, the built environment, economic development, and natural resources.

In the evening of Day 1, there will be an opportunity to network with conference attendees and explore one of downtown Flint's cultural attractions at the conference reception. Day 1 attendees have the option to stay the night and attend Day 2 as observers.** Day 2, hosted by the Great Lakes Adaptation Assessment for Cities (GLAA-C), will be more specifically focused on Imagine Flint master plan and targeted at local and regional stakeholders.

Organizer

Michigan Green Communities

Michigan Green Communities is a network of more than 400 local government leaders, the Michigan Municipal League (MML), Michigan Townships Association, Michigan Association of Counties, Michigan  Energy Office and Michigan Department of Environmental Quality. MGC members include staff and elected or appointed officials from cities, townships, villages, counties, colleges and universities across Michigan. Because few municipalities in Michigan have dedicated sustainability directors, members of the network come from a diverse set of backgrounds, including planning, public works and public administration.
