Sustainability Conversations


Initial conversations with possible participants in a “sustainability conversation” event has been positive in support of a Fall 2015 gathering of interested parties to explore, learn, share experiences and identify potential collaborations for future projects. Efforts have been made to research the kinds of events that have been held in the Grey Bruce area over the past years, or planned for the future, to ensure that the GBSusNet event is a complimentary fit to other planned events.



DATE: Thursday, November 19th, 2015

TIME: 8:30 – 3:30

 Measuring Success IMG_9991

The success of the “summit or conversation” will be measured according to the following:

  • Number of participants = 25
  • # of new projects identified within sectors = 10
  • # of new cross sector collaborative projects identified = 3

Achieving these targeted numbers would be an indication of complete success.
