Green Living magazine has some exciting news to share! We will be partnering with the fourth annual VerdeXchange Arizona conference and also debuting our first annual Simple Solutions Summit this December 7-10.
VerdeXchange Arizona is a three-day, state, regional and global, leadership conference focused on economic growth with an education and sustainability platform. Leaders come from all over to attend to share ideas and do business because they see their ideas become reality.
Green Living magazine is hosting a farm to table celebration happy hour after the conference’s completion on Friday, December 9 from 3:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m. Then on Saturday December 10, Green Living magazine kicks off our first Simple Solutions Summit, from 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. We feel that everyone wants to do the right thing but they do not know how to get started. Through panels, tradeshow booths and a take-home workbook, we will show attendees simple solutions that they can use every day. Whether you’re passionate about clean air, saving energy, sustainable education, purchasing and growing local food and goods, ethical fashion, groundwater concerns, reducing the amount of waste you produce, living healthier, or exploring more ways to live an eco-conscious life you should join the tribe at the Simple Solutions Summit. The Summit is the optimal event to continue educating, inspiring and empowering yourself and your family to action to live a sustainable, conscious life.
There will be an inspiring panel of expert speakers sharing their simple solutions; models in eco-friendly hand-painted dresses designed by Ruby Farias Designs; kids’ activities; an Eco Tank where social and environmental eco-preneuers can pitch their ideas to a panel of judges and receive seed money for their companies; interactive and educational tradeshow booths; and more! Every attendee will receive a Simple Solutions Summit Action workbook on how to get started on living an eco-conscious lifestyle.
While the VerdeXchange conference draws corporate executives, city, state and country leaders who are here to do business and still be more sustainable, the Simple Solutions Summit aims to bring together these business leaders and their families, plus the community as a whole to come together to learn and grow as a sustainable group.
Individual tickets to the celebration happy hour on the 9th are $65.00. Those who attend the VerdeXchange conference will attend the happy hour for free. Tickets to the Simple Solutions Summit costs $10.00 for students; $25.00 each; $40.00 family pack (2 adults, kids are free); $75.00 bundle for one ticket to the celebration happy hour and Summit. These events will take place at Phoenix Marriott Tempe at the Buttes Resort (pictured above).
