2020 CMC Sustainability Conference
April 17, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Foresight 2020 Resilient Futures for All
For communities to be resilient and desirable over the decades ahead, they must contain life-supporting ecosystems, equitable social institutions, and prosperous economies. For many communities, however, these traits are absent or threatened.
The goal of this conference is to convene diverse stakeholders from our communities to envision and create the futures we want.
Please join our celebration by registering to present on your, or your institution’s, contribution to community resilience. If you don’t want to present, you can still attend. There is no charge for conference participation, and up to three meals will be provided.
Keynote Speaker Beatriz Soto
Keynote speaker Beatriz Soto studied architecture in Chihuahua City and now runs Defiende Nuestra Tierra – a program that taps into in influential voice of Latinos in the Roaring Fork and Colorado River Valleys – for Wilderness Workshop.
