Summit Overview

Striving for Wellness

The 2017 Utah Sustainability Summit is the premier gathering of business professionals focused on designing, operating and managing the spaces where Utahans spend most of their time, in buildings.  This year’s theme Wellness:  Connecting Human and Environmental Health, allows us to invite collaboration with the ever more important health care community and to reach out to new sustainability professionals.  This summit will examine the value of taking an overall wellness perspective and present tools and techniques for improving society.  There will be exemplary speakers presenting on personal wellness, community wellness, regional and ecosystem wellness and global wellness. We are offering content session tracks in business management, built environment and health care.  In addition, we are offering a workshop track enabling participants to build leadership skills and address the sustainability challenges of individual workplaces.
