January Forum: Green Catwalk 2014

December 29, 2013

The Monthly Forums Program is kicking off 2014 with our annual Green Catwalk. This is an event focused on innovation in sustainability. We’ll be bringing in several speakers and giving them just a few minutes to tell us about a particular sustainable innovation. The result will be fast, fun, and very informative. We’ve got a great selection of speakers lined up already and will be adding more in the coming weeks. As always, we’ll spend the last 30 minutes or so on a Q&A session. If you want a peek at where sustainability may be headed in 2014 you won’t want to miss this one!


Date: January 15, 2014
Time: 6:30pm – 8:00pm
Place: Dorma Design Center, 1040 Avenue of the Americas, Manhattan, NY 10001 – 22nd floor
