Sustainable Tucson – Working Together Toward a Sustainable Communityby Kate Kaemerle on Mar. 12, 2012, under Sustainability
Creating a sustainable Tucson is going to take the cooperation of residents, government and organizations. Tonight’s meeting features a conversation with Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothchild and Council Members Regina Romero and Karin Uhlich about building a sustainable future.
The meeting is tonight at 5:30 PM at the Joel D. Valdez Main Library.
From the Sustainable Tucson website:
We believe that building a sustainable future will take the cooperation and partnering of residents, government, institutions and organizations. It is in this spirit that we are reaching out to the City of Tucson Mayor and Council, and bringing together the City of Tucson, Sustainable Tucson, and the wider public in this discussion and process…
In recent meetings we’ve identified the following broad categories for projects and action steps that will assist our community to move toward a sustainable future: Water, Energy, Waste, Land Use, Climate Change, Food, Economy, Social Justice, and Democracy…
This month’s Sustainable Tucson General Meeting will be an opportunity for the Mayor and Council Members to showcase those areas of interest that we share, and talk about their projects – either in progress or in the planning/visioning stage – which fall under the sustainability banner, and with the intent to build partnerships and work together toward our common goals.
