Founded in 2012 by Green Building Alliance, the Inspire Speakers Series proposes a new vision for the city, one based on inclusive dialogue and shared prosperity. Now in its 9th season, the series has welcomed over 100 national thought leaders to discuss topics including public art, placemaking, and equitable development. Series highlights include Paul Hawken, Joel Glansberg, Toni Griffin, and Candy Chang. The series has had the honor of hosting three MacArthur Fellows as speakers: Majora Carter, Mel Chin, and Walter Hood.
