Registration is now open for Sarasota County's 16th annual Sustainable Communities Workshop, an online event on Nov. 10 to showcase strategies for healthy, resilient, thriving communities.

Under the theme “Roots of Sustainability," the virtual conference will bring together residents, students and community members of all ages, sectors, and walks of life to learn about environmental, economic, and social aspects of sustainability. Featured speakers and panelists will discuss the latest sustainability strategies, resources, and best practices, while focusing on the roots of sustainability.

This year's speakers include Meg Lowman, a global pioneer of canopy science and public science communication and director of the TREE Foundation; Rob Greenfield, an activist and humanitarian who embarks on extreme projects to bring attention to important global issues and inspire positive change; and Tai Simpson, known as “The Storyteller” in the Indigenous language of the Nez Perce Tribe, who uses contemporary and traditional Indigenous storytelling to champion inclusion, equity, and liberation.

NOTE: The 2021 event remains virtual for enhanced access of participants and national speakers and safety related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
