Sustainability and the local community
Sustainability is not only about natural resources and the environmental, but also about the local community. Therefore, we work to implement and participate in programs that extend beyond the walls of the Convention Center and contribute to the overall benefit of the city of Denver.
- Donation Program: We partner with several non-profits and local organizations to donate left over conference materials. Please reference below the Donation Guide to learn more about these partnerships and what materials we accept.
- "The Colorado Convention Center has been a generous, key partner for RAFT since we opened our doors to teachers over 6 years ago. Thanks to CCC's efforts at repurposing, Colorado students have been able to learn and organize with diverse materials such as foam core, bags, paper & pens, foam fingers and stress balls, and even thumb drives! These materials, which are often branded with company logos, also teach students that items don’t have to be thrown away; with a little ingenuity, they can be upcycled into creative and educational projects!"- RAFT Colorado
