Greening the Heartland comes to Minneapolis in 2010

Greening the Heartland is coming in Minneapolis in 2010!

Greening the Heartland 2009 just wrapped up in Detroit (presentations are available online here), and now the Mississippi Headwaters Chapter and Minnesota Green Communities have begun planning for hosting the 7th annual conference in Minneapolis in 2010. Greening the Heartland is a regional green building conference centered around 14 chapters in the USGBC's "Heartland" Region. The conference typically promotes sustainable design and construction strategies in both private and public sectors, and has a regional and affordability focus. Greening the Heartland is intimate in scale (in comparison to a larger conference like Greenbuild) and offers continuing education credits for many programs.

The planning committee is open to suggestions - visit their blog here or leave a comment on this post if you have any ideas to help this be a great event!
