Conscious Capitalism: Live After 5
June 26 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm$5 – $20
The Power of Collective Impact
People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace, and Partnerships. The United Nations General Assembly approved Agenda 2030 in 2015, with 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 targets to be achieved by the year 2030. The SDGs offer an aspirational vision for a sustainable future, with many tangible actions that individuals or organizations can implement at the local level. Come learn and share about how they are already alive and well in our work and communities, and explore how you can amplify them in your own life. Spend the evening with Kim Smith, Co-founder of the Greater Portland Sustainability Education Network (GPSEN) as she links the SDGs with the principles of Conscious Capitalism.
Snacks and beverages will be provided, including beer and wine.
