Join us!

Join us for a monthly dinner series that convenes regional sustainability experts to forge interdisciplinary and inter-organizational networks and provide opportunities for information sharing, innovation, and creativity that enable progress on regional and global sustainability challenges. Participants come from a variety of organizations, including Colorado State University faculty; federal, state, and local agency experts; NGO, nonprofit, and business leaders; and others. This dinner series is hosted by CSU’s School of Global Environmental Sustainability.

Dinners aim to:

  1. Establish and strengthen networks of researchers and managers
  2. Identify opportunities for collaboration and information-sharing
  3. Improve your access to people, organizations, and new perspectives
  4. Promote new and innovative approaches to your work
  5. Inspire research, collaboration, enterprise, and collegiality

Come to many dinners, or just a few. We hold semi-regular dinners in fall and spring, accepting 20-25 participants for each dinner. We will select a diverse group of participants for each dinner should there be more people interested than room.

Evening Structure:

Dinner is on us!  Our goal is to provide the space and time to meet; we hope you will enjoy yourself during the evening and walk away with renewed inspiration, ideas, and contacts. Above all, this is an opportunity for some great feedback and networking on current sustainability work for all attendees.

We will send some 'food for thought' in advance of each dinner. Participants are encouraged to discuss projects that are new or early in design, would benefit from interdisciplinary feedback or new collaborations, would benefit from new perspectives, and/or you are particularly excited about. Ample opportunity will be dedicated to open discussion and networking.

Sign up here to be included in the series, and we will add you to the list of participants. We will send an RSVP link to the full participant list prior to each dinner and cap it at 20-25 people for each event.
