Get Involved! Your voice is essential to our success!
Register your organization. This includes individual congregations, businesses and other groups. There is no obligation. We will just list you as being affiliated with this initiative on our website.
Take the online survey at sevengenerationsahead.org. Get others in your organization to take the survey.
Attend the community forum on November 4, 2010 at Julian Middle School at 6:30 PM to give your input into the plan and meet other community stakeholders participating in the process.
No matter what our faith tradition we all share a reverence for Planet Earth and the wonder of nature. Many of us are becoming painfully aware that our current impact on the earth is not sustainable and is in fact threatening the future for our children and our children’s children. The good news is that our communities are working to create a plan for a more sustainable future, but your participation is needed in order to make this more than a plan that sits on the shelf!"
Congregations are an integral part of the community, as a place where people come together and share common values.
Once implemented, PlanItGreen initiatives are designed to improve the lives of all community members.
A draft of the complete vision plan will be developed by the end of this year, and implementation planning will begin early next year.
Project partners: Seven Generations Ahead, the Delta Institute, Oak Park River Forest Community Foundation and The Center for Neighborhood Technology.
