Mayor Michael B. Hancock invites you to the 2018 Sustainable Denver Summit

A City For All: Today and Tomorrow

ABOUT THE SUMMIT

The Sustainable Denver Summit is Colorado’s premier gathering for the exploration of and commitment to sustainability solutions. The Summit attracts over 700 people and dozens of exhibitors to the Colorado Convention Center. Summit attendees hear from exceptional speakers, review the latest sustainability commitments from businesses, non-profits and city agencies, see the latest in electric vehicle and other technologies, interact on a variety of current sustainability issues, and celebrate annual award winners who are pushing the envelope on sustainability. It is the must-attend sustainability event of the year!

A CITY FOR ALL: TODAY AND TOMORROW

With Denver’s growth comes opportunities and challenges. If basic resources are to be available and affordable to all we must manage them vigilantly so that everyone moves ahead together.

At the 2018 Summit, we will explore how to be good stewards of critical basic resources while equitably providing economic opportunity, clean energy, food, water, green space, mobility, and more to all of Denver’s people.
