Grow Smart CLT


We are excited to introduce our new monthly event series, Grow Smart CLT! Mingle + Drink + Think with Sustain Charlotte! 

As Charlotte grows (44 people move here each day), it's critical that we grow smarter. To help, in February we launched a new monthly event series called Grow Smart CLT. These fun, yet informative events explore the multiple sustainability challenges that Charlotte faces due to our rapid growth.

Each month we focus on a different issue that is being impacted by our growth. Our goal is to ensure that you not only walk away with a better understanding of the challenge but also at least one action you can take to help put Charlotte on a smarter path. Food will be provided!

Join us for our next event and scroll down to see recaps of our past events!

Wednesday, August 8th at The Barrel Room at Catawba Brewing (933 Louise Ave, #105) from 6-8 p.m.  

Tickets are $5 for non-Sustain Charlotte members (donate at least $5/month or $60/year) and free for members. Interested in becoming a member to attend the events for free? Click here.




As the Charlotte-Mecklenburg region experiences rapid growth, we have to make sure our planning and transportation decisions address people of all ages. Many senior adults in Charlotte struggle to maintain their mobility as they age, often resulting in social isolation and inability to meet daily needs. Join us to hear about our neighborhood engagement project to identify and address specific mobility challenges that prevent Charlotte seniors from traveling to their desired daily destinations. Hear from our panel of experts on what is being done at the local level to address this critical issue, and what you can do to help.




To be announced soon!
