The goal of the 2019 summit is to build off the promise of the 2009 summit and move toward action. By December, new collaborations were forming between 2019 groups and with existing nonprofit networks, entrepreneurs and city officials already plugged into resources.
Collaborations and progress will be reported on in the Work Groups section of this site. Examples of recent activity include:
- The 2019 Waste to Profit and E4S Zero Waste Network continued its collaboration with a three-hour work session on December 11, 2009 where participants identified strategies to move the region toward zero waste. Read more.
- The Vacant Land 2019 outcome group met on Dec. 4 at the Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative (UDC). The group was invited to join the ReImagine a More Sustainable Cleveland Project "2.0" steering committee as ambassadors and network weavers. Read more.
- The 2019 Water Works group met at CSU's Levin College on Dec. 3. The group established its goals and pledged to help group leader Erin Huber in her entrepreneurial venture, an environmental education program geared to Middle School students with water conservation and pollution prevention as themes.

- The 2019 Local Food group identified projects, which include building a space where urban farmers can preserve foods and host community dinners and meetings. Learn more and get involved here.
