Scaling Up: Building Municipal Sustainability Plans with Grass-Roots Action

August 18, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm PDT


A unique panel of grassroots organizers will be speaking about what their three cities – Isla Vista, CA, Fort Collins, CO and Columbus, OH – are doing to scale up the sustainability of their towns through a city-wide collaboration on an action plan.

A moderator will follow up with questions that will provide information about approaches to collaboration, goals, and prospects for future viability.

Our intention is for participants to think about:

  • What might a viable plan look like?
  • What are the components of a good plan?
  • How might grassroots groups go about cultivating support from city leaders and community members?

Also, how can scaled-up efforts be achieved through collaborating with city leaders, making a long-range sustainability plan, and finding the funding needed to implement a plan?

After panelists’ initial comments and follow-up questions, there will be a time for Q&A from the audience. Please come with your curiosity and questions!
