Eco Meet CLE

This event is organized by Venture Forward Strategies and Eco Speaks CLE and sponsored by Great Lakes Brewing Company. We were blown away by the attendance and response we received at our first Eco Meet CLE last September that we are doing it again. Thank you for your ideas and feedback!

Please join us on Tuesday, February 21, 2023 in the Great Lakes Brewing Tasting Room for our second Eco Meet CLE. Doors open at 5 p.m. At 5:40 pm, we will have a guided networking game, and at 6:00 pm, we will begin a panel discussion on local climate initiatives featuring city and county leaders. The discussion will be moderated by Danielle Doza and provide a regional view of climate actions being taken and some takeaways from attendees of COP 27.

Climate Panelists:

Please register by February 15th.
