Tristan to keynote the mindful Materials Impact Summit – Mon. June 13, Chicago
Dear friends and colleagues,
Please join me and all the great collaborators coming together for the historic mindful Materials Impact Summit in Chicago on Monday, June 13th!
The summit will bring together in one room the leading material sustainability groups from across the built environment alongside building industry professionals from all different fields eager to leverage their role for good.
If that wasn’t already compelling enough… This guy is keynoting…
As we come back together after COVID, I want to offer something a little different. And that’s what organizers Annie Bevan and Alex Muller have asked of me.
Annie said on a planning call, “I’m excited about this coming from your soul.” She discussed as a goal for this talk for “People to understand their power and their magic in a thoughtful way.”
I couldn’t have said it better!
I promise my keynote will not:
motivate by fear
call you out
inspire from without
Here's what I will do:
call out my own despair
find the magic on the other side of that
offer a template
inspire from within
If that and/or the material health content sounds in any way compelling, please see details and sign up here!
Here’s more event description:
Driving holistic materials sustainability is an essential and immediate need to course-correct the built environment towards a thriving future — from climate impacts, to the social inequities of toxic material exposure, inefficient material systems that drive waste, and beyond.
We all want to make a difference, but materials and their embodied impacts are part of complex, global systems. Navigating this landscape alone is daunting and inefficient.
mindful MATERIALS is a certification-agnostic industry convener, rooted in the idea that collaboration drives greater impact. On June 13th, 2022, mM will host the very first mMATERIAL impact summit, bringing together in one room the leading material sustainability groups from across the built environment alongside building industry professionals from all different fields eager to leverage their role for good.
