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 by Encore Catering.
We are proud to partner with Crown Town Compost to make these events zero waste.

WHEN + WHERE:
Wednesday, October 10 at Free Range Brewing (2320 N. Davidson St.) 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.
Charlotte's 2040 Vision. CharlotteFuture 2040 is Charlotte’s first Comprehensive Plan since 1975. Taiwo will share how the Plan will guide our City’s future growth, shape our community’s built character, link existing key plans and lay the foundation for capital investments throughout Charlotte. He will discuss how an equitable and balanced approach to a robust community engagement is crucial to the success of the Plan and how this Plan will inform our ongoing Unified Development Ordinance, a key implementation tool for achieving our community vision.
