E4S networking event: Sustainable business and poverty

Are there sustainability business solutions that will end poverty?

Sustainable business practices are creating opportunities to save money, start new businesses, create new jobs and design for the future. How do these practices impact those living in poverty in the region? How might we take what we know about sustainability - whole-systems thinking, radical resource productivity, cradle to cradle design, marketing to the bottom of the pyramid, etc. - and put it to work to reduce or even eradicate poverty?

Panel will include: Bill Doty, Principal, Doty Miller & Architects Gus Kious MD, President, Huron Hospital Jim Rokakis, County Treasurer, Cuyahoga County Mary Ann Stropkay, President, Shorebank Enterprise Cleveland Others to be announced...
