Sustainable Reston Meeting (2nd Wed of each Month), Wednesday, June 10th, 7:30 to 9:00 pm, Cornerstones Conference Room, Cardinal Bank Building, 11150 Sunset Hills Road #211, Reston, VA 20191.
Join us as we 1) formalize our Mission/Vision Statement, 2) report on the June 9th Reston Association Sustainability Working Group meeting, 3) strategize how we can take a more active role in supporting the RA Sustainability Charter, 4) encourage individuals and families, businesses, and local government and organizations to become better environmental stewards and advocates for:
- water quality, energy and natural resource conservation
- alternative energy and lowering our dependence on fossil fuels
- waste and litter minimization (reduce, reuse, recycle, resource recovery, and proper disposal)
- a more resilient community in the event of flooding, damaging winds, long-term power outages, and other threats which affect the health and well-being of our community.
We will also discuss a new outreach project – hosting a “Sustainability” booth at the Lake Anne Farmers’ Market – to survey/discuss attendees’ sustainability concerns and local issues; expanding our active membership base; and promote upcoming “green living/sustainability” courses and programs in the local area. We are looking for people who would like to teach or lead sustainability-related classes, we might also set up a “Local Sustainability Lecture Series”.
If you like to research/write about environmental issues – we will discuss sponsoring a series of articles on “Local Sustainability – Small Steps can Make a Difference” for the website, Reston Now, and other social media. Come learn about the exciting new project and share your ideas for articles, formatting, media placement, etc.!
