2016 Twin Cities Zero Waste Summit:
How do we make our solutions equitable for all?
Eureka Recycling is hosting the second annual Twin Cities Zero Waste Summit on Saturday, October 22!
The Zero Waste Summit will bring together the people in the Twin Cities region whose work is contributing to a zero-waste future; creating a platform to discuss challenges, share accomplishments, and develop a vision to strengthen and focus this growing movement.
The 2016 Zero Waste Summit will focus our conversation in three key areas:
- Zero waste is a solution to climate change
- Zero waste is a solution for environmental justice
- Zero waste is a solution that grows the local economy and build community
We will also be exploring how we can make the zero waste solutions that address these key areas equitable and accessible to all communities?
Hosted at the Saint Paul Neighborhood Network in Saint Anthony Park area of Saint Paul, the Summit will feature local organizations and projects, complimented by three national leaders to bring a broader perspective to the zero waste conversation.
Speaker’s presentations will be very brief and focused in order to make the most of your time to build connections, find new inspiration, and enjoy great local food and drink while you're at it.
Get your tickets for the afternoon of October 22 now so you can be a part of this exciting conversation.
Saturday, October 22, 1-5pm at SPNN (550 Vandalia Street, Saint Paul)
