The growing visibility of sustainable development
creates new opportuinities for NEO. We have a strong foundation of
organizations committed to sustainability. We have a thick network of
committed civic entrepreneurs who know a lot about these issues. We can
move forward with an aggressive sustainable development agenda in NEO.

On April 15, 4PM to 6PM, we will
continue the process of building these networks. At Weatherhead, we
will be holding a discussion on the emerging sustainability networks in
Northeast Ohio. April 15: Mapping the broad sustainability community.

This interactive brainstorming session
will tap your knowledge to map the sustainability landscape of
Northeast Ohio. Using network mapping software, we will explore the
relationships between the organizations, projects, and issues that are
making a difference today. Come and tell us what’s missing. Tell us
what’s cool.
