Registration for 2021, The Year of Energy, coming soon!

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. If you would like to be a part of Hands On Sustainability 2025 please contact us at handsonsustainability2025@gmail.com.


Thursday's keynote speaker is Miles Keogh of the National Association of State Air Agencies.

Friday's Appreciative Inquiry table topics include:

Health Equity, Transportation, Policy, Carbon Neutral Neighborhood, Education, Climate Action, ARAQMD, Home Air Quality, and more. 


Hands On Sustainability 2025 is grateful for all of our community partners especially:

The conference is named in honor of the year 2025 bein-g the 25th anniversary of the Cuyahoga Valley National  Park's (CVNP) official recognition as a national park. We see The CVNP as an incredible natural resource, inspirati-on, and driving force behind our initiatives. We hope to  actualize biomimicry, mimicking the natural world, of the CVNP into the facilitation of our programs and system de-signs that surround sustainability in the City of Akron and Summit County.
