The Sustainable Future Network (SFN) is a newly formed organization of individuals from northeast Iowa, southeast Minnesota and surrounding areas. SFN's goal is to bring organizations and people together to promote economic, environmental, and social sustainability in the region.
The Community Planning Workshop is intended for anyone who works or cares about economic, environmental, or social sustainability in the region. The workshop will be a fun and constructive way for people to voice their ideas for the future of their communities. Led by (INSERT SPECIFIC TRAINING HERE) and SFN founder Carolyn Corbin, attendees will establish various objectives for a sustainable future in our region. The group will then break off into committees and make goals to achieve those objectives. The planning workshop is free and all are welcome. Workshop attendees should rsvp to [email protected] before January 15.
At the Community Planning Workshop you shared your ideas – The Inaugural Ball will be a time to share your excitement. Informational booths will line the perimeter of the Steyer Opera House so the public can learn more about and talk with groups and organizations such as Luther College and (insert names) already working toward sustainability. The culmination of the evening will be live music and dancing to celebrate the inauguration of the 44th president of the United States, Barack Obama. Doors open at 6:30 pm – a donation of $10 or more is suggested.
