Open Project Night: SDG 12 Responsible Consumption & Production

As we near the holiday season, Impact Hub Houston and Sketch City bring you this special edition of Open Project Night, focusing on Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 12: Responsible Consumption & Production.

We’ll be kicking off the session by featuring two guest speakers. After these presenters are finished, we will open the floor to other #OPNHOU participants to share their projects, per our usual format.

Come connect and collaborate with passionate people who are working on projects, ventures, and collaborations to improve the resilience and quality of life in Houston. If you have an idea, are working on something, or are looking for ways to collaborate with people who are doing work at the intersection of innovation and impact this event is for you! You can still join us, even if you will not be presenting a project! The event requires both a mixture of presenters and people from the community to support, listen, and collaborate with the presenters.

EVENT SCHEDULE:

1) 6:00-6:30pm Meet + greet; light snacks

2) 6:30-7:00pm Project presentations: Maximum of 2:30 minutes per project and each project leader must answer the following questions:

– What are you currently looking for in the way of talent/skills from the community?

3) 7:00pm-8pm Presenters breakout throughout the room and the community comes around their projects during…drum roll… Open Project Time!

Impact Hub Houston is part of a global movement of organizations around the world who are dedicated to advancing the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Commonly known as the Sustainable Development Goals — or SDGs — these “17 goals to transform our world” are a powerful call to action that aims to unify and mobilize people, organizations, and nations to “end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all”.

Most Houstonians aren’t familiar with the SDGs (even though several are already working towards solving the goals). Join Impact Hub Houston and The Cannon for the first #SDGCoffeeChat where you will get an overview of the 17 SDGs and meet other entrepreneurs who are passionate about making an impact in our community and beyond!
