Our Invited Speaker:

Brent Fryrear, Director of the Partnership for a Green City

What Exactly Is Sustainability? And Why It Matters.

Brent Fryrear is the director of the Partnership for a Green City, a sustainability collaboration of Louisville Metro government, Jefferson County Public Schools, Jefferson Community & Technical College and the University of Louisville. As public partners, we work toward being good stewards of the environment and the taxpayer’s dollars – while propelling Louisville to Green City Status.

This partnership provides robust opportunities for research and demonstration projects across a variety of areas, including energy use, green infrastructure, transportation, waste, purchasing, engaging students and behavior change.

Brent has more than 27 years in the environmental field in consulting, industry, government and higher education with the past 19 years focused primarily on pollution prevention and sustainability issues. He is a published author and an active presenter at conferences around the country.

Many people want to do something that helps the environment and often only think about recycling, which is important, however, there is so much more to contributing to the initiatives of becoming more sustainable. Brent Fryrear is a tremendous speaker and you will enjoy learning, laughing, and having some tangible and practical ideas that you can implement at home and at work. Together, we can all do something to make a difference in our community.

We will be taking a break for the summer, so we hope that you can attend our June 25th Breakfast and enjoy strengthening your relationships while meeting some new people and leave with knowledge of why it matters that Louisville is a city leading by example with engaging our citizens and our community to become greener.
