About this event

Join the Eco Meet CLE on September 20 becasue there is nothing better than the energy we create by being in a room together. This event is being organized by Venture Forward Strategies and Eco Speaks CLE, and sponsored by Great Lakes Brewing Company.

We are gathering those involved in sustainability - whether it be for many years or those early on their journeys - to make connections and spark conversations. This event is inspired by the former monthly meetings of Entrepreneurs for Sustainability (E4S) that were held in the tasting room of GLBC for over a decade and by the other organizations that paved the way for the work that is being done today - Earth Day Coalition, EcoCity Cleveland (renamed GreenCityBlueLake), Corporate Roundtable, Green Drinks, Black Environmental Leaders, Green Energy Ohio, NOACA, Cleveland Water Alliance, Green Building Coalition (now USGBC Ohio), Sustainable Cleveland 2019, Cleveland 2030 District, Conscious Capitalism NEO, and many more.

This event will be an opportunity for us to capture the work of the past and present, and to connect around the work we need to do now for the future.

Please register by September 10th to allow us to properly plan for the group.

Who should attend

Anyone working in or interested in sustainability in Greater Cleveland. Newcomers welcome!
