10-Year Celebration

November 16, 2017 @ 6:45 pm - 9:00 pm

For every grand challenge, we believe there’s an even grander solution. Join fellow environmental advocates for an evening of inspiration as we celebrate the Institute on the Environment’s first 10 years — and look forward to its next chapter.

Enjoy sustainable bites as you mingle and take in Backyard Phenology’s Climate Chaser camper, the People of IonE photography exhibition, and other entertainment. As part of the evening’s program, the Climate Quartet will give a performance; University of Minnesota President Eric Kaler will deliver remarks; and IonE Director Jessica Hellmann will share her vision for the future of the institute. We’ll also announce the winners of the first-ever IonE Solutions Prize, who will give talks about their inspiring work.

When: November 16, 2017

Where: Aria, North Loop, Minneapolis

What: An evening of impact-driven inspiration

All proceeds support the ongoing work of IonE, a cross-disciplinary institute at the University of Minnesota that reaches across boundaries to solve our biggest environmental challenges and foster the next generation of environmental leaders. We envision a world in which sustainable agriculture provides for everyone’s needs; renewable energy powers all homes; our clean water supply is shared wisely; and thriving ecosystems support healthy, resilient communities. Together, we create the future.
