Call for Speakers and Proposals

button Our 2014 program was our best yet thanks to your input and collaboration. We hope to continue this positive trend — contribute to the shape of this year's conference by submitting a speaker, creative session or case study proposal for consideration. We are looking for unique and creative speakers and sessions that offer concrete tools and actionable lessons for our audience to implement into their own organizations. Case studies should highlight innovative solutions to pervasive challenges from an organizational or industry perspective.

2014 Redux
GoGreen Portland 2014 included over 350 attendees and 60 speakers — business leaders and pioneering thinkers from regional public sector agencies, nonprofits, and educational institutions; with a focus on a diverse array of private sector companies from fields especially strong in Oregon — technology, financial services, small-scale manufacturing, and the food and beverage industry. Attendees discussed new ideas and tackled the big issues facing sustainability efforts locally and globally. In workshop and lab sessions, we gained hands-on strategies for improving employee engagement, increasing commitment to climate action and best practices for closing the waste loop, growing equity and maximizing social investment capital. Regional leaders shared their innovative approaches, challenges and accomplishments of their progress with their peers to move us towards a more sustainable future.
