2019 Sustainability Summit at Merry Lea

Location: Rieth Village (4415 W 200 S, Albion, IN 46701)

Date: February 15-17th, 2019

Six years ago, the Sustainability Summit at Merry Lea was born out of a desire to raise up more sustainability leaders on college campuses in our region. The Summit has proven to be an energizing and refreshing venue for like-minded peers to network, get creative, eat good food and have fun.

This year, the theme is “Urban/Rural Sustainability“.  The group will explore the similarities and differences when it comes to building sustainability in those contexts, as well as the philosophies and practices needed to do so.
