Solutions Labs - New to the GoGreen line up, these labs present an experiential learning environment on specialized topics. Built to explore issues in greater depth, lab attendees get the chance to experiment with new modes of thinking and formulate the application of presented strategies to address relevant and persistent issues. Labs are guided by guest experts and interactively involve participants in the development of working solutions.

Demo Workshops - These workshops will serve as a how-to guide, giving attendees hands-on opportunities to interact with tools, technologies or complex learning material. Attendees are encouraged to engage directly with session leaders and will leave with an applied understanding of the topical content.

Panel Discussions - From across industries and sectors, a carefully curated cohort of leaders discuss topics of critical importance to the resilience of the Northwest region and economy. Through real world case studies, our leadership plenaries offer strategic insights for replicating success, experienced perspectives from the front lines of sustainability and transferrable solutions for our shared challenges. Among this year's topics: climate change, health, the future of transportation, innovative funding avenues for triple bottom line entrepreneurs, and the next frontiers of managing our regional waste stream.
