The Bamboo Workshop at the 2018 Black Sustainability Summit

For anyone of African descent interested in sustainability, Black Sustainability, Inc. is hosting the eighth annual Black Sustainability Summit from October 6 through 8 so people can network, inspire each other and facilitate collective work. It will be a zero-waste event.

Attendees will learn from sustainability practitioners and leaders around the globe about how communities can implement homegrown, climate-conscious and environmental solutions while leveraging available resources. Presenters will host hands-on workshops and share high-impact reports of their work. The event will also feature demonstrations of atmospheric water, water quality testing, solar and EV solutions and disaster/climate preparedness simulations.

“After this year’s Black Sustainability Summit, we would like to see the development of a State of Black Sustainability Report to share scalable, climate/environmental solutions addressing the pervasive issues that impact our communities,” says Nikeya Alfred, Black Sustainability’s marketing and communications specialist. “We want attendees to walk away having learned the practical steps they can take every day to live more sustainably and restore the planet.”

“We are unapologetically committed to sustainable, liberated, lifelong learning communities for people of Afrikan descent,” says the event website.

The three-day summit will feature State of Black Sustainability Reports on October 6 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. in Stonecrest; Practical Application and Workshops on October 7 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. in Snellville; and Next Steps on October 8 from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in Atlanta. Outdoor workshops for the entire family will be provided on October 7 at The Original Promised Land in Snellville in partnership with the 14th Annual Collard Greens Cultural Festival.

Details on the final locations will be provided upon purchase of a ticket and ticket prices will be on a sliding scale for all sessions.
