GreenTown's Upcoming Events

These next few weeks are big ones for us here at Greensburg GreenTown! Coming up on October 29th and 30th is our Sustainable Disaster Recovery Conference that we are co-hosting with St. Louis University’s Center for Sustainability and GreenTown Joplin. The conference will be in St. Louis at SLU and cover a plethora of topics, including Incentivizing Sustainable Recovery, An Artist’s View of His Hometown, Teaching Through the Lens of Sustainability, and many more.  The full itinerary is on display if you click on this link. I am excited to be in attendance and learn more about all the forces that came into play to make sustainable recovery in both Greensburg and Joplin happen and how to promote sustainable disaster recovery in the future. The conference is open to you too, and with the great variety of panels and expertise of speakers, I wouldn’t want to miss it! Click on this link to find out about registration. Registration for one day is available for those of you who want to attend the conference, but can't make it for both days. Hope to see you in St. Louis!

Another upcoming event for GreenTown is that in three weeks, our Indiegogo campaign for the Meadowlark Eco-Home will come to a close. We are so appreciative for the public support we’ve received for this project! While Indiegogo is not the only avenue we are pursuing to try to finish this innovative home, it is currently the only way for the general public to specifically support this project through GreenTown. Any small amount you can donate will be appreciated and will go towards completing the home. To recap the special aspects of this home, it is the first home in America to be constructed using a wood-block system by HIB, it is one of the few buildings in America to use Passive Design, and it will be free and open to the public to experience these features when completed! You can help complete this project by donating or by sharing our campaign with friends. Greensburg can become a model for the nation in yet another way with your help!
