Hubbard Sustainability Series


The Claire M. Hubbard Foundation Sustainability Series is a quarterly event at MCC at Do Space that allows speakers to inform the public about the importance of sustainability on a local, regional and national level. These speakers will show that the sustainability problems and their solutions can begin locally, but need everyone’s attention to help keep the community, the country and even the planet operating smoothly. The topic and its experts change every quarter, and this quarter is focused on wellness and the built environment.
