The Integrated Network for Social Sustainability (INSS) and Sustain Charlotte have partnered to bring you the 2019 Charlotte Sustainability Summit! The first event last year welcomed over 300 Charlotteans who were eager to learn more about the sustainability efforts being made in Charlotte and how they could get involved. We hope you join us this year to do the same!
This year’s summit theme is “How individuals and communities can make more sustainable choices that improve health, advance equity, and mitigate the impacts of climate change.”
The Integrated Network for Social Sustainability (INSS) works to encourage a greater appreciation for social aspects of sustainability with a particular focus on engineering and its allied professions. At heart, they see sustainability as an integrated concept, rather than as separate environmental, economic, and social sustainabilities, in that each of these elements is inseparable from the others. Social elements remain underappreciated in this model, and we work for greater inclusion of these in planning and practice.
