Hands On Sustainability 2025 is an annual conference in Summit County Ohio that works across silos on issues of sustainability. The steering committee, consisting of The Big Love Network, GAINS, The City of Akron, The County of Summit, and many other non profit and local businesses and corporations, meets biweekly to plan this event. Each year we work on a different issue of sustainability, outlined below. This transformational event is designed through the appreciative inquiry process to encourage participants to dream, discover, design and destiny solutions for our sustainable future. After the conference the designs from the conference and recommendations are published on this website.
