How Do We Make the Sustainability Message More Compelling?ISSP logo
A facilitated roundtable discussion

June 23rd
5:00 – 7:30 PM
at The Alliance Center
1536 Wynkoop Street, Denver
Hosted by: the Alliance for Sustainable Colorado and ISSP Colorado Chapter

Those of us working to promote sustainability in different types of organization – business, government, non-profits, academia – are often frustrated by the fact that people are rarely persuaded or motivated by data-supported studies that show benefits of a more sustainable economy. Moreover, it often seems as though we’re all communicating different themes to various audiences without a cohesive sustainability message. Let’s connect as one voice.

The Colorado Chapter of ISSP is teaming with the Alliance for Sustainable Colorado to bring together sustainability advocates and professionals from all walks of life and all types of organizations to discuss how we can message sustainability more effectively and collectively.
We will facilitate a roundtable discussion on:
1. How do we message and communicate sustainability in a way that engages people’s hearts and emotions?
2. How might we bring different types of organizations together to communicate our message in a way that shows it’s not just those left wing activists, those greedy business folk or those theoretical professors that believe in the benefits of a more sustainable world – but all of us?

We will have appetizers and cash bar available. The cost is $15 per person. There will be a maximum number of participants and so we encourage you to register early!

Register before June 19th
