Crowdsourced Conversations #1: Sustainability
THANK YOU to everyone who joined us for our first Crowdsourced Conversations forum on April 27th. It was truly a blast for us and we can’t wait until our next forum, coming up at the end of June! Details coming soon…
This year, FutureHeights and Friends are bringing you a conversation-based forum series that brings Heights residents together to talk about topics that matter to us all.
We are excited to welcome all of our Heights friends and neighbors to our first Crowdsourced Conversations forum on Wednesday, April 27th from 7pm-8:30pm at Coventry PEACE (2843 Washington Blvd, Cleveland Heights). The evening’s topic will be sustainability — and we will be relying on the crowdsourced responses from the Cleveland Heights Green Team’s environmental issues survey to craft small group discussion questions.
The CHGT’s survey was widely circulated from March 1-March 21 and received about two hundred responses from community members — we so look forward to make the conversation about what folks in the Heights are most interested in talking about!
Opening remarks for this event will be made by Councilwoman Josie Moore and members of the Cleveland Heights Green Team.
Crowdsourced Conversations is Not Your Average Forum Series. Over the course of these four discussion-based events, our goal is to provide opportunities for community members to connect with each other and co-create actionable steps to make the changes you wish to see!
All are welcome!

HOW THIS SERIES FLOWS
Each forum will have a pre-survey for you to fill out. We will use your answers to help formulate discussion topics for forum night. During each forum, participants will enjoy the company of small breakout groups where, with the assistance of facilitators, they will dive into the questions generated by survey respondents. After small group discussion, we will reconvene as a group-at-large to share what we talked about. And even after we say our goodbyes, we will keep in touch and keep the conversation flowing, build community connections, and continue to brainstorm actionable ideas.
2022 SERIES TOPICS & DATES:
#2: Housing – tentatively Wednesday, June 29th (more details soon)
#3: Community Safety – tentatively Wednesday, August 31st (more details soon)

This forum series will be an opportunity to connect with other Heights residents about topics that impact us in a variety of overlapping ways. We hope you can join us for all four conversations! Stay tuned for more details soon. Any questions, connect with Sarah – email@example.com.
