Sustainability and Social Enterprises
Sustainability involves more than ecological health and includes social equity and economic vitality. This year's keynote speaker, Christina Keller will describe her work with Cascade Engineering in developing the Hydraid® BioSand Water Filter which is bringing people access to safe water and empowering people in Africa and Latin America.
Christina will describe how social enterprises are an emerging way for people to make an impact and make a profit. From B-corps to Kickstarter to impact investing and microlending, people are changing the way they do business to build a sustainable future.
