As Charlotte grows (44 people move here each day), it's critical that we grow smarter. To help, in February 2018 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. Scroll down to see our past events!
In 2018, each month we focused on a different issue that is being impacted by our growth with the goal of ensuring that attendees not only walk away with a better understanding of the challenge but also with at least one action they can take to help put Charlotte on a smarter path.
We are excited to announce that our Grow Smart CLT event series will return in 2019 on the second Wednesday of every other month from 6-8 p.m. Visit growsmartclt.org for dates and tickets.
This unique event shows hundreds of people how easy it is to get around Charlotte without driving! This ticketed event allows attendees to bike around town to fun destinations while collecting stamps in your official Biketoberfest Passport.
The stamps you collect on your passport at official destinations will be entered into a raffle for many fantastic prizes! The more destinations you visit, the more chances you'll have to win! In 2017 we had a record-breaking attendance of over 550.
This event takes place every year in October. Learn more about the event and get details by visiting biketoberfestclt.org.
Through this annual April event, we highlight the achievements of local sustainability leaders and the issues that shape the sustainability of our region. The memorable evening includes dinner, an awards presentation, and an auction fundraiser. Learn more and get your tickets to this event by visiting sustaincharlotte.org/awards.
Using wayfinding signs, this initiative encourages residents and visitors to walk, rather than drive to destinations in their area. #WalkCLT is powered by OrthoCarolina. The 2018 event was attended by over 375 attendees and raised awareness of the role that walking can play as a mode of transportation and the many social, environmental, and economic benefits walking generates for ourselves and our community. Learn more about this event by visiting walkclt.org.
