Louisville officials are joining others in the business and environmental communities for a second Sustainability Summit, scheduled for the first week in November.
This year’s focus is on air quality, said Maria Koetter, the city’s sustainability director.
The program features discussions and presentations on air quality and health, citizen-led initiatives, buildings, land use and transportation, alternative energy, natural systems and community engagement.
Louisville’s Office of Sustainability and the Louisville Sustainability Council are sponsoring the event, which includes an opening reception on Nov. 5, 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., at Copper & Kings, 1121 East Washington St. The reception features welcome presentations, hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar and special entertainment.
The working program is Nov. 6, from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., at the Kentucky Center for African American Heritage, 1701 West Muhammad Ali Blvd. There, participants will attend plenary and breakout sessions focused on improving Louisville’s air quality. A light breakfast and lunch will be provided.
Cost after Friday, Oct. 16, is $75 for general admission. Early general admission is $50, available through the 16th.
Students may attend for $25, and sustainability council members get discounts.
