The 5th program in the 10 BIG IDEAS series will focus on EcoDistricts, following the 2014 EcoDistricts Summit being held in Washington D.C., from Sept. 24-26, 2014.
We will host Clark Brockman, one of the nation's few EcoDistricts leaders, to share his insights from nearly a decade of personal experience.
What is the potential for EcoDistricts in Baltimore and the surrounding region, and what would be needed to create these sustainable cities starting at the neighborhood level? Articles in the The Baltimore Sun and Baltimore Business Journal have referenced the growing interest in this concept.
Don't miss your chance to learn from an expert and network with others interested in developing local EcoDistricts. Breakfast will be provided.
7:30 - 8:00 a.m. Check-in
8:00 - 10:00 a.m. Program & Networking Breakfast
