Sustainable Alachua County Hosts Community Stakeholder Meeting, February
Sustainable Alachua County (SAC) is a non-profit organization founded in
1996 to promote discussion and action on issues of sustainability. The
mission of Sustainable Alachua County is to provide education and civic
participation opportunities that enhance the sustainability and healthy
functioning of our environmental, social/cultural, and economic systems.
Sustainable Alachua County is currently reassessing and realigning their
mission and goals to best meet the needs of the community. SAC will host
a stakeholder meeting on February 12, 2009, 7-9pm in the Fellowship Hall
at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, 100 N.E. 1st Street, Gainesville, FL
President of the SAC Board, Susan Marynowski, notes "With a tighter
economy and the effects of global climate change, we are seeing a
surging interest in sustainable living. We are eager for the community
-- in the broadest sense -- to tell us how SAC can best serve as a hub
or clearinghouse for sustainability education." Sustainable Alachua
County is inviting the public to participate and share ideas of how SAC
can help the community work and live more efficiently.
The meeting will feature a short presentation on SAC's history, by Susan
Marynowski as well as a short presentation by Sean McClendon, Alachua
County Sustainability Manager, on the recent report of the Alachua
County Energy Conservation Strategies Committee. Professional
facilitators, Bruce Delaney and Wendy-Lin Bartels will lead the meeting
to assess sustainability resources in the community, and identify the
role SAC can play in identifying and providing resources.
Refreshments will be provided. Please RSVP to [log in to unmask]
