An Evening of Sustainable Innovation
8 speakers. 8 minutes each. Bloom! is Seattle’s showcase evening of innovative speakers working in sustainability- “sustainability” as it applies socially, environmentally, and/or economically. Each Bloom, we curate a collection of lightning talks from leaders in the community, with plenty of networking opportunities and cocktails. Bloom speakers have covered the likes of nuclear power, food forests, bike shares, and cupcakes. Our next event is slated for Thursday, February 20th, 2014. Join us!
