VOX Beer Summit: Introducing 2018 'Homegrown' Initiative

Vox Culture will be opening the new year with a special event to introduce it’s focus on tackling the topic of environment in Houston. The advocacy organization will be hosting its second annual VOX Beer Summit at Eureka Heights Brew Co.  the evening of Friday, February 9th from 6:30PM to 8:30PM. The event will be the formal opening for the organization’s 2018 theme, ‘Homegrown’.
The Vox Beer Summit will provide a chance for guests to meet Vox Culture's community partners for the year: Houstainable, Citizens’ Environmental Coalition, and the Sierra Club of Houston. The organizations will present information to the audience pertaining to their work, the current environmental challenges Houston faces and what is or needs to be done, innovative solutions that can have a positive impact on environment, and the push for a proper environmental policy for the City of Houston. Guests will also have a chance to network individually with the groups to inquire about their work, ask environmentally related questions, and potentially sign up for future volunteering or fundraising opportunities with these groups. Towards the end of the presentations, guests will be welcome to come express and talk about either the challenges or positives that they see in their neighborhoods and/or Houston overall, on the subject of environment, and voice what they would like to see done in Houston. 
A happy hour selection from Eureka Heights will also be available for guests wanting to purchase beer. Soft drinks and water will also be made available.
The goal behind ‘Homegrown’ throughout 2018 will be to educate, raise awareness, fundraise, and develop creative social action projects that address a variety of environment related issues impacting Houston. Among the final aims of the year for Vox Culture will be to present (1) how ideas presented by Houston artists can be implemented to further raise awareness on environment, (2) how creative solutions developed by local entrepreneurs and startups can be used to address environmental issues.
