The 2010 follow-up to Mayor Frank Jackson’s Sustainable Cleveland 2019 conference last year was called “Advancing the Glocal Engine.” The event attracted about 600 people at the historic Cleveland Convention Center on Wed 9/22 and Thu 9/23, using an “open space” process whereby participants walk over to join a group they want to join. Using the Appreciative Inquiry process, which is strength-based (rather than focused on deficits) to make change in very large groups.
