Saint Paul Area Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement on Aug. 6.
While event planning isn’t “one size fits all,” many of the sustainability lessons learned from Minnesota’s sports industry apply to every type of event or venue in our region. Minnesota is home to leading sports franchises, facilities, and major events that prioritize sustainability, like U.S. Bank Stadium, the Minnesota Twins and the St. Paul Saints. From waste and recycling to attendee engagement, these sporting events are becoming greener, and there are things we can all learn from their efforts.
Join Environmental Initiative to explore sustainability leadership and initiatives inside Minnesota’s sports industry. Learning from a sports context, attendees will share best practices of sustainable event planning, facilities management, and community engagement. The session will feature case studies on built environments as well as panel discussion around the opportunities and challenges of planning a sustainable, large-scale event.
