Learn from the Most Creative and Exciting Sustainability Stories of Our Time at an Event you Won't Want to Miss!!

 

Concord, New Hampshire, October 18, 2018 ­­– Leading sustainability initiatives will take front and center stage at New Hampshire Business for Social Responsibility's 4th Annual Sustainability Slam. This event, which takes place at LaBelle Winery in Amherst, NH on November 1, 2018 from 5:00-8:00 PM creates a platform where the most creative and innovative solutions to our environmental and social challenges are brought to life in dynamic 90-second story sound bites. Dee Fitzgerald of W.S. Badger, a returning company sponsor of the event, enthuses, "The Slam format is so unique and different, it's a fabulous and validating way to bring people together to not only meet, mingle, and network, but to share inspirational stories."

 

As part of NHBSR's Just One Thing Campaign, the Sustainability Slam recognizes the sometimes unnoticed, but significant efforts of local companies and nonprofits to make a positive difference in our world. The final line up of 2018's Slam presenters have been chosen by an independent panel of judges based on the impact and scalability of their stories in our communities, workplaces, and environment. At the Slam these finalists will compete with another company or organization in their category for a winning spot and the designation of "Best of the Best."

 

NHBSR invites you to join them in celebrating and being inspired by this year's presenting finalist and to submit a sustainability story of your own at nhbsr.org/JOT.
