A dinner series convening regional sustainability experts to forge interdisciplinary and inter-organizational networks and provide opportunities for information sharing, innovation, and creativity that enable progress on regional and global sustainability challenges.
Participants are sustainability researchers and professionals from a wide variety of organizations, including Colorado State University faculty; federal and state experts; city and county managers; NGO, nonprofit, and business leaders; and others. They aim to:
- Identify opportunities for collaboration and information-sharing
- Improve your access to people, organizations, and new perspectives
- Foster creative and innovative approaches to your work
- Establish and strengthen networks of experts, linking producers and users of science
- Inspire research, collaboration, enterprise, and collegiality
Dinner is on us! Our goal is to provide the space and time to meet; we hope you will enjoy yourself during the evening and walk away with renewed inspiration, ideas, and contacts. Above all, this is an opportunity for some great feedback and networking on current sustainability work for all attendees.
We will send some ‘food for thought’ and a participant list in advance of each dinner. Participants are encouraged to discuss projects that are new or early in design, would benefit from interdisciplinary feedback or new collaborations, would benefit from new perspectives, and/or you are particularly excited about. Ample opportunity will be dedicated to open discussion and networking.
Come to many dinners, or just a few. We hold semi-regular dinners in fall and spring, accepting 20-25 participants for each. We will select a diverse group of participants for each dinner should there be more people interested than room. Dinners are fully hosted at a local Fort Collins restaurant.
