The Green Advisory Team met last night in Fayetteville. The group discussed the Earth Day Celebration and had a teleconference with a representative of ICLEI. The following is a brief recap.
As Doug reported to everyone, we are almost finished with our collection of raw data for this project. Missy at ICLEI was gracious enough to spend almost an hour on the phone answering our questions about data collection. Once we have input all of the data into the ICLEI software, the group will begin focusing on a local climate action plan. With the help of local government, businesses, and our dedicated group of volunteers, this should be a fun and informative process that we all look forward to.
Sue and Ginger are working hard on Earth Day, which is scheduled for April 19, 2009. We are currently working to identify additional organizations who want to set up a booth at the Earth Day celebration. Any business that provides environmentally friendly goods or services as well as any nonprofit that works on environmental issues are urged to contact the Green Advisory Team about setting up a booth at the event. The event was a huge success last year and was extremely well attended.
If you have a business that would like to set up a booth at the event, contact Sue Plumley at email@example.com or call Sue at 673-4610. We are also accepting donations from businesses or individuals who want to support the Earth Day Celebration.
Thanks to everyone who attended. The next meeting is March 30, 2009 at 6:30 in Fayetteville. The meetings are open for anyone to attend.
