Join us for an informal and fun evening of conversation and networking! Our Monthly Mixers provide an opportunity to learn more about us, our partners, and meet others interested in local sustainability issues.
At 6:45, our program will begin and you'll hear from Architect and Planner Tom Low of Civic by Design! He will be giving an engaging presentation on the topic of: Light Imprint for walkable green infrastructure. This leaner, lighter approach to infrastructure is more cost-effective, sustainable, and livable—an idea worth considering for Charlotte and beyond.
This is a family-friendly event and all are welcome. Please be sure to register to let us know you're coming!
