Invitation to Earth Data: A Sustainable Chicago 2015 Celebration
You are invited to join the City of Chicago and partners at the Earth Day 2013 event, Earth Data: A Sustainable Chicago 2015 Celebration, on Monday, April 22 at 6:00 p.m. at the Chicago Cultural Center, (78 E. Washington), Preston Bradley Ball Room.
This event will be a celebration of the community’s and City’s accomplishments in making Chicago greener and a discussion of the remaining challenges and the ‘made in Chicago’ solutions that the community, in partnership with government, can produce.
- Who’s coming? The event will convene City government; the sustainability and data analytics community; the public; and, the event host, World Wildlife Fund, who recently named Chicago an Earth Hour Climate Leader.
- Why sustainability and data? The event represents the intersection of Earth Day and Big Data Week and will set the stage for Mayor Emanuel’s Earth Day announcement of the first competition in the Chicago Cleanweb Challenge – a series of competitions to increase sustainability through applied data analysis.
- What’s on the agenda? Join the Institute for Cultural Affairs, Little Village Environmental Justice Organization, the City’s Chief Sustainability and Chief Data Officers, and others to discuss how we are using sustainable actions and open data to drive Chicago’s efforts to tackle climate change and create the city of the future
- There’s more! This event will announce the Earth Data Hackathon that will take place later that week on Friday, April 26 & Saturday, April 27 as the first event in Mayor Emanuel’s Chicago Cleanweb Challenge. See earthdatahackathon.eventbrite.com for additional details.
