The 2014 Beyond Sustainability Conference will be held Friday February 28 and saturday March 1
The Beyond Sustainability conference continues to move ideas into action and offers opportunities to engage in meaningful dialogue with intended outcomes and to cultivate potential collaborations. As we dive deeper into conversations about the Triple E (Education, Ecosystems and Economics) bottom line of sustainability, the goal of each year's conference is on creating nexuses among social entrepreneurs, investors, educators, government, regulatory agencies, businesses, and community.
