We celebrate the launching of our 17th year!
The meeting featured presentations on accomplishments of 2022 and plans for 2023. During the past year, the Coalition’s action teams have pursued major projects, such as
- Solarize Corvallis to help our community make the transition to renewable energy
- It’s On Us Corvallis to support our local restaurants and food producers, and to help people in need of a meal
- More than 700 plantings to regenerate our local streams
- No Food Left Behind Corvallis to address the environmental, social, and economic impacts of wasted food
- …and many more!
As in past years, the Coalition’s Annual Meeting sponsor was First Alternative Natural Foods Co-op. The first 150 people who registered and attended the Annual Meeting were entered in a drawing for a $100 gift card to the Co-op – and there were three lucky winners!
Much of the work done in 2022 – the Coalition’s 16th year – focused on climate action and social equity. Several Coalition projects are helping to implement the Corvallis Climate Action Plan, while others address systemic inequities, and some do both.
The Corvallis Sustainability Coalition is a network of more than 350 partner organizations and hundreds of individual volunteers. Partner organizations include businesses, non-profits, faith communities, educational institutions and government entities. The mission of the group is to promote an ecologically, socially, and economically healthy city and county.
The Coalition’s action teams work on 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.
