Our new Economy group is looking at ways to make the local economy more sustainable. Many Transition Initiatives refer to this as "REconomy." We are planning a Repair Cafe and exploring ways that we can help promote our local time bank. We would love to hear your thoughts and ideas on how to best develop a thriving local economy. Our next meeting will be on January 18 at 7:30PM in Ellicott City. Everyone is welcome to participate. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details and directions.
On January 12 we showed Racing To Zero at Miller Library. It is a quick-moving, upbeat documentary presenting new solutions to the global problem of waste. The film follows San Francisco's innovative efforts towards achieving zero waste, dramatically reducing the city's carbon footprint. It examines our society's garbage practices in terms of consumption, preparation, use and production, and discovers some amazing solutions.
On November 12 we held a forum on Healthy and Sustainable Communities for Howard County: You Can Help. This free public forum focused on Health and Healthy Lifestyle; Community Planning; Environmental Protection; and Sustainable Communities.
