Environmental Sustainability Community Event

SHARE Charlotte Environmental Sustainability Community Event

SHARE Charlotte is helping to build a better Charlotte by EMPOWERING NONPROFITS AND HELPING PEOPLE invest in their communities in ways that matter most to them.

One of the main ways we do this through bringing together community members and nonprofits together to meet and connect through our Community Events. This year due to the support of Wells Fargo and Albemarle, we were able to create our first-ever community event focused on Environmental Sustainability.

Environmental sustainability can sound like a complex global problem, and it is -  but there are innovative local nonprofits working to make Charlotte a leading-edge city in environmental sustainability.

During our event, attendees had the opportunity to meet and network with nonprofits who are working to create a zero-waste, low-carbon future and ensuring that our surrounding rivers, land, and wildlife are being protected.  Plus, they learned about  ways all Charlotteans can go green, support these nonprofits and create a more sustainable future. ♻️
