We hope you’ll join us for the launch of our 10th anniversary year!
You are invited to attend the Corvallis Sustainability Coalition’s Annual Meeting of partner organizations and volunteers on Thursday, January 5, from 12 noon to 1:30 pm at the Corvallis-Benton County Public Library, 645 NW Monroe Avenue. Everyone is welcome!
The meeting will feature presentations on accomplishments of 2016 and plans for 2017 – our 10th anniversary year. We have been working on a wide variety of projects in 12 topic areas: Community Inclusion, Economic Vitality, Education, Energy, Food, Health and Human Services, Housing, Land Use, Natural Areas, Transportation, Waste Prevention, and Water. Our efforts are directed toward goals outlined in Community Sustainability: A Framework for Action, which was developed with extensive community participation.
A highlight of the Annual Meeting will be a showing of Harvest Sunshine, a newly released video produced by the Coalition to promote the 5-year solar campaign that was launched in Corvallis a year ago. The campaign, which is designed to help the community transition to a fossil fuel-free future, is a partnership between the Sustainability Coalition, the Corvallis Environmental Center, and Environment Oregon. It includes an ambitious 5-year goal to more than double the amount of solar on residential and commercial rooftops in Corvallis.
The Coalition’s Annual Meeting will include an opportunity for networking and information sharing by attendees, as well as delicious refreshments provided by Coalition partner First Alternative Natural Foods Co-op, which is sponsoring the event.
