Community Forum: Building Sustainable Communities
When: Tuesday, July 23rd, 6:30 – 8 p.m.
Where: Varsity Center Gallery, 418 South Illinois Avenue, Carbondale
Description: Carbondale’s Sustainability Commission is seeking ideas from the community to help develop a Sustainability Action Plan for Carbondale. And wherever you live, we need to be building communities that will be more energy efficient, self-reliant, and restorative rather than destructive to the eco-system.
Ideas from individuals who live and work in Carbondale will be crucial in helping the City achieve its goals. Specific areas of interest include Energy in Built Infrastructure, Energy in Transportation, Water Use and Green Infrastructure, Food Production and Consumption, and Waste Reduction.
The Sustainability Commission is already asking people to fill out surveys that will help it with its work. You can download or print a survey here. At this community forum, led by some members of the Commission, we have an opportunity to brainstorm and share ideas with one another about making Carbondale more sustainable. Please join us!
