Sustainable Denver Summit


Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock and the City's Office of Sustainability invite you to join with other leaders from across the city for a daylong working summit to develop and announce commitments for new and expanded initiatives that will help Denver achieve our ambitious 2020 Sustainability Goals.

Modeled on the Clinton Global Initiative, the Sustainable Denver Summit will convene leaders from business, advocacy groups and other NGOs, municipal government and residents into four facilitated collaborative working groups to produce commitments that will help close the gap between where Denver is today with regard to our shared Sustainability Goals and where we need to be by the end of 2020.

We all love this place. Join us as we work together to ensure that the resources and quality of life we enjoy so much are available and affordable to all Denver residents, both now and in the future!
