Sustainable Cleveland 2019

Sustainable Cleveland 2019

Sustainable Cleveland 2019’s Celebration Year of People recognizes the many sustainability champions that have brought us this far in our journey. Since 2009, SC2019 has engaged more than 15,000 people through working groups, events, and social media.

We look to continue to grow this number in 2019 and beyond and we are proud to promote GardenWalk Cleveland as part of this Celebration Year. Cleveland gardeners in seven neighborhoods have created green spaces that bring together neighbors and sustain the natural beauty of our area.

Cuyahoga50

This year also marks the 50th anniversary of the last burning of the Cuyahoga River. To celebrate this significant anniversary, more than 200 organizations are coming together throughout 2019 to celebrate our progress and to ignite action to protect this most valuable resource.
