ABOUT US >

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.
