On April 14 the GreenTown conference will be hosted at the Kent State University Hotel and Conference Center. The conference will focus on the creation of healthy and sustainable communities addressing topics such as walkable and bikeable communities, clean water, local food, outdoor space, and creating socially responsible businesses. Pre-conference workshops and activities are offered on April 13. One of the breakout sessions during the main event on April 14 will be a panel discussion titled “Biomimicry: Innovation comes naturally.” Panelists include three of our biomimicry fellows (Emily Kennedy, Adam Pierce and Sebastian Engelhardt). More information is available on the official website of GreenTown at Kent and updates will be posted as the date approaches. Registration for the event is now open.
