The Louisville Sustainability Council and the Metro Louisville Office of Sustainability invite you to the 4th annual Louisville Sustainability Summit!

This year’s Summit will focus on why climate change is a high priority issue in Louisville, how we are planning for it, and what we as individuals, neighborhoods, and businesses can do to help transition to a more equitable and climate resilient Louisville. 

This year's keynote speaker will be Vanessa Keith, author of 2100: A Dystopian Utopia – The City After Climate Change. Vanessa is a registered architect and the Principal of Studioteka Design, an award-winning architecture firm she founded in 2003. Studioteka approaches design through a multidisciplinary lens that spans the boundaries between architecture, economic and social development, and urban and environmental concerns. Vanessa is especially interested in innovative sustainable design and the issues faced by cities as they adapt to climate change, as well as in design-oriented technical and engineering solutions to environmental problems.
