Thank you to all who attended our first-ever virtual conference
Greening the Statehouse 2020: Resilience in a Time of Upheaval

Friday, November 20 – Saturday, November 21, 2020

Indiana’s largest annual gathering of environmental-minded Hoosiers took place as a virtual conference this year with a fantastic line-up of panels covering climate & energy solutions, factory farming, lake & river protection, wildlife habitat preservation, and more!  Nearly 350 people from all eight regions of Indiana registered.

Below was our schedule of events, and here were our GTS 2020 speakers.  The winners of the 2020 Greening the Statehouse Awards were the following phenomenal grassroots activists & organizations, and you can get a gist of their achievements in our press release.  GTS was covered by the Chicago Tribune, Statehouse File, and Indiana Public Media.

Please stay tuned for postings of our online panel discussions and workshops.
