Sustainability Conference

The Sustainability Conference held November 13-15, 2013 was a great success with interesting and informative presentations made by experts from all over the world. The importance of sustainable activities are obvious in everything from our energy resources to our food supply. 

Our thanks to Ray Young and his committee who did an outstanding job.  We, also, thank our outstanding presenters who spoke to the conference.  It is rare that a conference of this caliber can be developed by a Sister Cities Organization. We thank the University of South Florida Sarasota/Manatee for their participation and support.

Beth Ruyle Hullinger, President Sarasota Sister Cities.
All in all, the conference was attended by more than 360 interested adults and students who represented six Sarasota County schools and several universities.  A total of 21 speakers gave presentations at the conference.  You can enhance your knowledge on one of the most critical issues of our time and future by viewing their slide presentations on our conference web site.
