Sustainability unConference

April 22, 2014 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Ecomotion, Impact Hub Boston, and District Hall are celebrating by bringing innovators and sustainability advocates together to participate in this unique event. To riff off the diverse sectors, organization, communities, backgrounds, and generations we look forward to providing a platform for greater collaboration and innovation!

An unConference is a conference where the attendees make it all happen. There will be several programmed panels, exhibitors and thematic spaces, but the majority of the unConference content will be up to you! As Wikipedia says, “…at an unConference, the agenda is created by the attendees at the beginning of the meeting. Anyone who wants to initiate a discussion on a topic can claim a time and a space. Unconferences typically feature open discussions rather than having a single speaker at the front of the room giving a talk, although any format is permitted. This form of conference is particularly useful when the attendees generally have a high level of expertise or knowledge in the field the conference convenes to discuss.”

Are you knowledgeable about some aspect of sustainability?Are you passionate about changing the path we’re on as a society? Are you excited to see what can come out of a gathering of Boston’s change-makers? Space is limited, so make sure to reserve your spot now!

If you are interested in hosting a session, you can propose your idea here. If you are interested in volunteering for the unConference, please submit your information here.
