“Beyond getting so many key players to step up to the table and start the conversations and pulling off all the logistics and magic to make it all happen, the Sustainability Summit was great proof and demonstration of the fact that sustainability is not a partisan concept, the answers don’t belong to one party or another, the solutions won’t be found in taking sides — but in sharing a focus on the goals. I got such a positive impression that people came together because they also believe the answers will come out of collaboration and compromise, and that everyone has an interest in making sure we have a community and a region where our environment remains beautiful and our resources are sustainable, where children are educated and prepared to thrive in the future, and where businesses are financially sound and growing.”
