Weatherhead Collaborates with Stakeholders for Sustainable Cleveland 2019
The City of Cleveland, the Fowler Center for Sustainable Value, and the GreenCityBlueLake Institute have come together to host Sustainable Cleveland 2019: Building an Economic Engine to Empower a Green City on a Blue Lake: an Appreciative Inquiry Summit.
Work on the summit began a year ago, when Mayor Frank G. Jackson met with Weatherhead's Dr. David Cooperrider. Together, they discussed the possibility of hosting a major event to design a transformative economic agenda using Appreciative Inquiry.
From that meeting, ideas emerged for a three-day collaborative summit that would engage the community, along with national thought-leaders and regional stakeholders. This idea becomes a reality August 12-14.
