Here's what some attendees from last year have to say:"I always enjoy this conference because it is like recharging my battery (An eco- friendly one, of course!). Attending speakers and workshops allow me to catch up on relevant issues that I keep planning on reading about, but time does not allow."
" The keynotes were over the top. I got so many ideas and leads. It was a wonderful chance to connect with international leaders that I've wanted to meet for years."
" The number of fields from which people came really added to my knowledge about who's doing what in sustainability."
" The best thing about EnvironDesign for me (this was my third) is meeting people and sharing stories about how to make real progress."
" All in all it was an inspiring conference. I came home with so much information and so many ideas for the future."
" Overall, this is still my favorite conference to attend. I always leave feeling rejuvenated and ready to promote sustainable design again.""It is amazing for me to see a gathering of people drawn together not by narrow occupational categories, but by the implications and possibilities of a thematic approach to change in all its diversity."
