Our Green Valley Alliance for Sustainability (OGVA) is having their annual Sustainability Conference on Oct 31-Nov 1 (Thursday and Friday). This is the continuation of the Green Town conference that we held in 2011 and the other OGVA conferences since then. It brings together government officials, private industry, and higher education to talk about sustainability solutions for our community. Please logon to http://www.ourgreenvalley.org/ to register for the conference.
This is always a great conference to learn about sustainability initiatives in our community and to get energized about how we can move forward and make the Wabash Valley a more sustainable place and to improve quality of life. This year, we have Eco-Artist Betsy Damon (http://www.greenmuseum.org/content/artist_index/artist_id-62.html) as a keynote speaker and we will be bringing in Year of the River themes into the conference. We have made great strides since our Green Town Conference in 2011 but we still have much that we can do. Come and join us to share in this conversation!
