On November 7, 2019 from 5:00-8:00 PM at LaBelle Winery, sixteen local companies and nonprofits will bring their inspiring stories of impact to life on stage! They will present their sustainability solutions in quick 90-second segments, with the most creative and engaging presentations rewarded—think anything ranging from skits to songs to raps and dances! The audience is expected to fully participate, too!! Attendees choose the night’s winning presentations via smartphone polling and, both before and after the live performances, have a chance to network, celebrate and share their own sustainability successes.

The Sustainability Slam highlights NHBSR’s larger Just One Thing (JOT) Campaign, which shines the spotlight on local sustainability solutions that are replicable, impactful, and innovative. The NHBSR JOT Campaign highlights and shares local sustainability stories that are submitted throughout the year (http://nhbsr.org/just-one-thing/storyboard). An independent panel of judges selects finalists among these stories to present live at the Slam.

NHBSR welcomes your presence at this year’s Sustainability Slam. Register now at nhbsr.org/JOT to attend an engaging evening of networking, featuring fast-paced and high-energy presentations that might spark your own sustainability efforts and initiatives.
