About Denver Green Forum
The Denver Green Forum is a series of green forums and events discussing the future of sustainability in Colorado via the state’s foremost green thought leaders and innovators. Our main event is a quarterly sustainability panel empowering attendees with insight from leaders in the green community. Whether you're an entrepreneur or just a concerned citizen, we try to offer inclusive panels that educate our audience on how to lead a more sustainable business and life. Our events are held in venues around Denver, one of the fastest growing and most progressive cities in America.
Though we do enjoy showcasing green businesses from around the state, we want to make our event is a grass roots movement that isn't beholden to any corporate sponsors.
That being said, our event is made possible through community support and sponsorship!
Costs for running each event include venue fees, marketing (i.e. banner printing - on recycled paper, of course - advertising, etc.), domain & website hosting, food & drink (unless in-kind sponsorship is provided), photography & videography, management fees (to compensate those who put in their time to help create or run the event - this cost is our last priority when the budget is tight), event supplies, and, in the event an out-of-town speaker is brought in, traveling and accommodations costs
Our ultimate goal is to keep our panel running quarterly and to expand our operations to include a YouTube channel and sustainability course. We believe Coloradans, and all Americans, should be educated on the pressing environmental issues that effect our health and daily lives, and how they can change their lifestyles to proactively address these issues and have a higher quality of life.
