• SA Tomorrow Sustainability Forum



    You’re invited to San Antonio’s first ever Sustainability Forum!  This will be an interactive evening of local visionaries and community members planning today for a sustainable San Antonio tomorrow.

    June 23, 2015
    5:00 – 8:00
    In the Grotto of the Henry B. Gonzalez Center

    The Sustainability Forum will provide a platform to learn about and help refine what sustainability means to San Antonio.  The ideas generated through this Forum, and other stakeholder and public engagement activities, will culminate into a robust, actionable Sustainability Plan.  As one of the three plans in development through the SA Tomorrow planning process, the Sustainability Plan will serve as the roadmap to the sustainable future envisioned through the SA2020 process.

    The City and its partners are designing this event to be innovative and fun with five distinct areas running concurrent activities and programs–

    • Sustainability in Action: A series of TEDx-style presentations and panel discussions that summarize existing activities and inspire further action.
    • Creative Brainstorming: Concurrent facilitated ideation sessions on how to meet the goals of the Sustainability Plan.
    • Speed Planning: Quick idea blasts on topics relevant to sustainability in San Antonio.  Participants rotate through a number of tables for 10 minutes each.
    • Sustainovation (Sustainability-Innovation) Tech Zone: This area will offer interactive polling, continuously stream previously recorded speaker presentations, and host other online engagement platforms.
    • Expo Hall: This area will house organizational partner and corporate sponsor information tables.
