In 1994 a small group of like-minded companies launched an initiative that would allow local companies, colleges, governments and non-profits to share knowledge and collaborate on initiatives promoting sustainable business practices within their organizations and the region. One of the first organizations of its kind in the world, West Michigan Sustainable Business Forum has served as a support network for two generations of triple-bottom-line practitioners, playing a critical role in distinguishing West Michigan as the nation’s unofficial capital of sustainable business, helping to popularize green building, sustainable product design, beyond-compliance practices and savings-driven sustainability.
This September the forum will celebrate its 20th Anniversary through a gala event and commemorative campaign designed to increase general awareness of the organization and raise the funds necessary to position it as a community leader for the next two decades.
The forum’s new flagship fundraising event celebrates sustainability in West Michigan by bringing fun to a serious and at-times overwhelming topic. This year we incorporate the Grand Rapids skyline with a natural environment at the new Bissell Treehouse at John Ball Zoo, add great food and good drinks, while serving up the region’s foremost sustainability spokesperson for a night of laughs and schaudenfreude.
Due to space limitations at the venue, seated attendance will be strictly limited to 220 people. Individual tickets are $100 each.
