Inspire Speakers Series

Inspire-Speaker-Logo-2014-15The Inspire Speakers Series is a sequence of lectures that brings fresh, innovative thinking on topics of sustainability to Pittsburgh, with the goal of inspiring and motivating our citizens and leaders to think bigger and bolder about what is possible for our region.

The series features nationally renowned thought-leaders from various sustainability fields, as well as local experts who can share their experiences of promoting environmental quality, social equity, and economic vitality in Western Pennsylvania.

We are still finalizing this season’s full lineup of speakers, but are happy to announce that we have a very special lecture to begin the series.
