Sustainable Tucson Special Action Meeting
Dear Members of Sustainable Tucson,
This past year has been an exciting one for the ST Core Team as we have
presented community events, expanded our membership, and organized our
efforts toward our goal of a truly sustainable Tucson. We have reached a
critical juncture where we now have the capacity to expand our efforts
exponentially-and we need your help to do it.
You are receiving this email because you indicated, at a meeting or
elsewhere, that you'd like to stay informed and take action as a member of
Sustainable Tucson. Many of you expressed interest in joining an "affinity
group" that seeks to tackle a particular aspect of Tucson's sustainability.
We are now ready to activate these affinity groups. We envision the groups
organizing themselves with our assistance, engaging the sustainability
conversation on their topic, and launching hands-on projects. The ST Core
Team will facilitate the development, integration and networking of these
groups to serve ST's mission: to help build a sustainable community for all
Interested? Mark your calendars to attend Sustainable Tucson's Affinity
Group Activation meeting on the evening of Tuesday, Oct 2, 6-8 pm at the
Joel Valdez (Main
downtown) Library. Meet other Tucsonans as passionate about sustainability
as you are! We will provide light refreshments. Please R.S.V.P. to
info at sustainabletucson.org if you plan to attend so we have a head count for
refreshments. There will be a Sustainable Tucson presentation of who we are,
short presentations describing the different affinity topics, and a
networking session to organize Affinity Group members. The current
member-generated list of affinity topics include:
Water Building Economy Education Energy
Food/Agriculture Health Transportation Faith/Spirituality
Other Affinity Groups are encouraged to form as well. If you feel a sense of
leadership arising within yourself and you would like to facilitate this
first session organizing a particular Affiinity Group, please reply to this
email address so we can help get you set up. We do need your help..
If Affinity Groups aren't your gig, Sustainable Tucson needs ongoing
internal help with our events, website, communications and administrative
