Sustainability and Entrepreneurship

The Sustainability Leader Community Forums are free and open to the public. Feel free to forward information about the Community Forum on to others.

The Sustainability Leaders Community Forum introduces the Madison community to “thought leaders” working on the front lines of sustainability.

Over the course of each semester, practitioners and experts speak about sustainability, corporate social responsibility, greening their business and/or corporate citizenship.  The goal is to inspire discussion, create relationships, explore trends and opportunities, and develop an understanding of what is happening around Wisconsin.

The Community Forum grew out of interest by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation in supporting a speaker series at the University of Wisconsin.  The forum began in Spring 2009 and has presented over 60 speakers to the Madison community.

The Friday forums are held in Grainger Hall on the UW-Madison campus. Registration for each session opens approximately two weeks before the session.
