Sustainable Cleveland 2019 was founded in 2009 by Mayor Jackson to build a thriving “green city on a blue lake”. The initiative creates a framework for Clevelanders from all walks of life to work together to build a robust and resilient region by focusing attention on annual key areas fundamental to a suitable economy – 2015 is the Year of Clean Water.

The City of Cleveland is pleased to welcome two dynamic keynote presenters to this year’s Summit: Naomi Davis, Founder of Blacks in Green, an award-winning economic development organization based in West Woodlawn, Chicago with a national network; and Marcus Eriksen, who embarked on a 2,000-mile, 5-month journey down the Mississippi River on a homemade raft to study the ecological impacts of plastic marine pollution.
