Scaling Up: Building Municipal Sustainability Plans with Grass-Roots Action
August 18 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pmFree
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!
