Welcome to the 5th Annual Green Innovations Symposium!
This year's 2013 Green Innovations Symposium features discussion topics on urban agriculture and community sustainability. Focus will be on the issues of food industry sustainability from foods locally produced to sustainable food transportation, bioenergy crop potential and opportunities, local "green" public and private campuses and energy opportunities available, and partnering with students to achieve sustainability. Please see the symposium schedule for more information about this year's scheduled speakers and events.
Our conference will close with noted sustainability speaker Dr. David W. Orr sharing his experiences with the 'Oberlin Project", a joint effort of the City of Oberlin, Oberlin College, and private and institutional partners to improve the resilience, prosperity, and sustainability of their community. The Oberlin Project's aim to revitalize the local economy, eliminate carbon emissions, restore local agriculture, food supply and forestry, and create a new, sustainable base for economic and community development is a model for Wisconsin communities to emulate.
