About this Event

Sustain Dane and Edgewood College invite you to be part of the 2019 Sustain Dane Summit: Regenerate for Wellbeing. Gain new knowledge and skills, strengthen relationships with a local community of peers, and work together to identify ways to co-create regenerative culture and actions that bring together ecological sustainability, social equity, community wellbeing, and leadership in our organizations and in the region.

• Learn how others around the world, country, and region are engaging in this work.

• Deepen our understanding of community wellbeing and regenerative culture and actions as the goal of ecological sustainability, social equity, and leadership.

• Connect and join the expanding community of changemakers.

Now in its eleventh year, the Sustain Dane Summit is the annual sustainability program to attend. The Sustain Dane Summit brings together professionals, students, activists, neighbors, and community members. The interactive program has become an unparalleled forum to connect, share ideas, reflect, and learn new skills to lead and inspire change.
