HiveX - SPN Presents "The Business of Local"

Join the Hamilton Sustainability Professionals Network (SPN) at HiveX 2014 as we host a workshop on The Business of Local. Engage in thought provoking sessions with the opportunity to generate and contribute innovative, Hamilton-specific ideas focused on rethinking “people, planet and profit”.  Help generate ideas about the importance of investing in the community that will be incorporated into a white paper that will be published on and presented to the City of Hamilton.

The SPN is excited to host the following local thought leaders in our community, who will be leading discussions on: the arts, economic development, food and agriculture, infrastructure, health, the natural environment, culture & history, and more!
