Sustainable You! conference logoRegister now - don't miss these exciting keynote presentations!

 

This year's conference will feature some great speakers who are leading by example and moving their communities toward a more sustainable future!

 

Keynote Speakers

We'll kick it off with Mayor Bob Dixson who is leading a rebuilding effort in Greensburg, Kansas, after a destructive tornado tore up the town in May  2007. Sustainable building, renewable energy and "green" technologies are the cornerstones of the recovery of Greensburg.

  

Described as an Eco-Entrepreneur, Majora Carter will keynote the opening day luncheon with her "Home(town) Security" presentation. A 2011 TED Prize winner and one of Fast Company's Top 100 Creative People in Business, Majora hosts the Peabody Award winning public-radio series: The Promised Land. She has a long list of awards and honorary degrees, including a MacArthur "genius" Fellowship. She founded Sustainable South Bronx in 2001 when few were talking about "sustainability"; and even fewer, in places like The South Bronx.

 

It is always important to have a good story and Joe Tankersley is a master at helping to write one that attracts attention, secures emotional connection and compels action. Joseph Tankersley is a storyteller, futurist and creator of immersive experiences. For over 25 years he has helped organizations create compelling messages about their goals and visions for the future. He has worked with national and international corporations, NGO's and governments. Joe employs a wide range of media tools; from oral storytelling to feature films and fully immersive physical environments to help communicate these messages of better tomorrows.

 

We have a great closing plenary panel with regional and state leaders who are busy trying to design and implement sustainable communities plans. Moderated by Cambridge Systematics' John Kaliski, Pat Steed, Jim Murley and Kathy Neill will explore the sustainable communities planning efforts being undertaken by two distinct regions in Florida - South East Coast of Florida stretching from Indian River County to Monroe and the Heartland in the Central Florida Regional Partnership region. Along with a look at the Department of Transportation's Horizon 2060 long-range strategic plan for Florida.
