About this event

Our goal at mM is to connect ideas; to connect mindful materials with mindful practitioners; and connect the dots between intent and action when it comes to materials. We’re bringing our regional mM pop-up mMATERIALS show on the road this year. Minneapolis is the second stop on our tour and we’re diving into circularity. If you’re a manufacturer, architect, designer, contractor, end users/owner, educator, or anyone excited about a world with more sustainable materials for every project – join us in Minneapolis at the MSR Design studio on May 24th from 5:00p-8:00p to learn and connect with others in the materials community.

Recent materials pledges have aligned a number of different stakeholder groups in the built environment. Come learn what next steps look like on the road to building a Common Materials Framework, and why the industry is looking beyond single impact areas like carbon to take a more holistic approach to materials sustainability.
