Sustainability Summit -- Building Urban & Rural Resilience

The 6th Annual Sustainability Summit at Merry Lea will take place on the weekend of Feb 15-17. Students from around the region will gather to grow their knowledge, skills, and network to become more effective sustainability leaders on their campuses and in their communities. Events will include an expert-led placemaking workshop, separate tracks for urban and rural foci, and a keynote address on theology of place from Pastor Jonathan Brooks of Chicago ( Of course, we will also spend time exploring the 1189 acres of natural beauty at Merry Lea!
