Telluride-based The New Community Coalition is happy to announce the next Sustainability Cafe, this one in Mountain Village. We are grateful to the fine folks at Fairmont Heritage Place, Franz Klammer Lodge who are opening their Alta Room for the gathering, which takes place Wednesday, Dec. 29, 10:00 a.m.
If you haven't been to a Cafe, it's pretty simple. Sustainability Cafes are a chance for us to gather and talk about issues of the day that generally relate to sustainability. (What doesn't?). Who should come? Anyone and everyone, young and old, visitors and residents, friends and neighbors. What's on your mind? What have you done lately that you're proud of? What changes have you considered in your life, and where are the challenges? What help do you need? What actions can we take as individuals, businesses, and as communities to do better? Since we're coming to the end of 2010 and looking forward into 2011, now is a great time to reflect and plan for the future. Not exactly New Year's Resolutions. Or maybe they are…
Sustainability Action Cafes also happen the third Tuesday morning of each month, 8:30 a.m., at Telluride's Wilkinson Library. And we'll be switching things up and around throughout the year. Local Libations will happen again in Norwood starting in January. We'll be planning more in Mountain Village as well.
Of course you can always send ideas and input to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call at 970-728-1340, but we really like to talk in person. Emails and texts don't always cut it, which is why we hold these Cafes. Hope to see you there.
