About this event

    The Environmental Defenders of McHenry County is excited to invite key community members to the first McHenry County Sustainability Summit on Monday January 31st, 2022. This event will be a virtual event.

    Who is coming?

    • School District Officials
    • Restaurant Owners and Managers
    • Municipal Officials

    Why is this summit important:

    Food waste alone amounts to 6-8% of human-caused greenhouse gases, the equivalent of 32.6 million cars’ worth of wasted energy. We see these wastes everyday in our own community, on our farms, in our restaurants, schools, and homes, and we know we can do better.

    Keynote Speakers:

    • Jamie Brown Midwest Specialist Eco-Products
    • Julie Schilf US Environmental Protection Agency, Region 5

    Breakout Sessions with Panel Discussion:

    • Restaurants
