Green Umbrella’s 10th Midwest Regional Sustainability Summit will be taking place on May 12, 2023 at the Duke Energy Convention Center in Cincinnati, Ohio, to continue to deepen dialogue and build community around solutions. Healing the climate crisis will take everyone, and the Summit provides a perfect setting for leaders and doers throughout the midwest region to connect, network, learn, and inspire. .

This year’s theme of “Imagine What’s Possible” invites us to come together in collective hope and renewed resilience in the midst of the climate crisis.

Join the Summit as we imagine visionary and inspiring possibilities that inform, empower, and motivate our actions to create a more vibrant, equitable, and thriving region. With the pressure to address the climate crisis with increased urgency, it is natural to feel climate anxiety and grief. How can we acknowledge the challenges we face while moving beyond perceived limitations to find optimism and active hope? What kind of world is possible if we get this right? Green Umbrella hopes this conference can be a spark for connecting, learning together, deepening our resolve, and joyously finding our places in the mighty “we” rising to secure a just and livable future.

Panel discussions, workshops, and art that opens our minds and hearts to envision what is possible will be offered  in a variety of climate-related issue areas including:

* Healthy & Resilient Communities
* Business & Green, Circular economy
* Government & Policy
* Healthy, High-Performing Infrastructure
* Active Transportation, Public Transit & Micromobility
* Resilient Local Food Systems
* Climate Justice, Equity and Inclusion
* Green Workforce Development
* Emergency Preparedness

The call for speakers, artists, and workshops is now open and will close January 31, 2023. Registration is also now open with early-bird pricing until February 28. 

This year's keynote speaker is Dr. Katharine Wilkinson, best-selling author and strategist. Her books include the anthology All We Can Save, The Drawdown Review, Drawdown, and Between God & Green. She leads the All We Can Save Project and co-hosts the podcast A Matter of Degrees. Her TED Talk on climate and gender equality has nearly 2 million views, and she has been featured by Time magazine as one of 15 women who will save the world.
