What is Green Soapbox?

Green Soapbox is an annul event, organized by the Delta Emerging Leaders Associate Board, that explores an environmental issue impacting our local community. You are invited to join in discussion with local experts participating in a panel. This year’s topic will focus on understanding shoreline erosion in the City of Chicago and how communities are working address the related challenges.

This year, Green Soapbox is going virtual! More details to be announced soon!


Beach Erosion and Climate Change: Increasing Community Resilience

The beaches are washing away! Climate change is already impacting the Chicago shoreline and throughout the Great Lakes States. What is the City of Chicago doing to mitigate the effect of rising water levels? Can we look to marine coastal communities and other partners for assistance? What does the future hold for the communities along the lakeshore?

Speakers will be announced soon!
