Greening Your Event
Michigan’s Great Southwest Sustainable Business Forum (MGSSBF) will host a luncheon workshop on green events and how to implementi recycling and other sustainable practices at events. This is a long-time interest of the Forum and one of its strategic priorities for 2017.
The organization has assembled a panel of experts that have led sustainability efforts at events throughout the Midwest, including Autumn Sands, Sustainability Manager for Barfly Ventures, Roger Cargill, Special Events Manager at Schupan Recycling, and Daniel Schoonmaker, Executive Director of West Michigan Sustainable Business Forum.
The event includes lunch, networking, a panel presentation and a facilitated discussion that will help event organizers, volunteers and other interested parties develop recycling and sustainability plans for events. Through feedback captured at this event, MGSSBF will work to create a toolkit for local event planners.
