Summit reports what was learned from Hurricane Harvey

July 11, 2018 by  

The Greater Houston Environmental Summit is taking place next month, and is a presentation of the Citizens’ Environmental Coalition (CEC).

The main focus of the summit is how Hurricane Harvey impacted Houston and the surrounding communities, and what learnings can be taken from it.

There will be three guest speakers at the summit: Vince Ryan, Tina Paez, and Elizabeth Love. There will also be several smaller table talks led such figures as Karly Robinson of the True to Texas Coalition, photographer Jim Olive, and Erin Kinney from HARC (Houston Advanced Research Center). There will also be special presentations on pertinent topics like climate change.

Lunch is also included and will feature locally grown foods.

There will also be an Environmental Education Expo taking place during the summit. It will feature tables hosted by CEC members and local businesses. They will be providing the public with information about their various programs, services, and products. CEC member organizations can rent space for as little as $5.

Houston print shops are often asked to provide exhibitors with printed products or promotional products to hand out to those who stop by their booths.

The Greater Houston Environmental Summit will be held on August 10 from 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM at the United Way Community Resource Center. Fees are $40 for CEC members and $50 for nonmembers. Contact Rachel at 713-524-4232 to learn more.
