Sustainability Summit

Join SHARE Charlotte and Carben Events as we bring back the Charlotte Sustainability Summit this summer to The Dubois Center at UNC Charlotte Center City! This full-day event will include multiple workshops and discussions from different nonprofit organizations, city and county leaders to highlight the impact of collaborative efforts in advancing sustainability in Charlotte.

​Discussions will cover topics ranging from transportation, trails and land conservation, greenways and parks, waste solutions, wildlife conservation, local food and more.

Tickets are on sale now for $30 and include access to the full day of events as well as a boxed lunch. Student discount tickets are available for $20. Student IDs will be checked at check-in. 

The Charlotte Sustainability Summit debuted in 2018 and was produced by Sustain Charlotte and UNCC’s Sustainability program. After a pandemic-induced hiatus, SHARE Charlotte and Carben Events are proud to relaunch the event to continue educating Charlotteans on how they can make more sustainable choices.
