Carbondale Resilience Fair Scheduled for August 28

CARBONDALE – The Carbondale Sustainability Commission, in coordination with the Climate Economy Education Inc. and the SI Cooperative Business Fund, is hosting a Resilience Fair on Saturday, August 28, from 1 to 5 p.m. in the Carbondale Civic Center. Anyone who calls Carbondale home is invited to attend. 

The Sustainability Commission has drafted a Sustainability Action Plan to lead Carbondale into the uncertain future of climate change in a way that prioritizes the environment, economics, and equity. The afternoon opens with an educational panel with speakers who will address those three topics, followed by small group discussion to elicit more ideas for the Action Plan. The third hour will cover opportunities available from resources beyond Carbondale; and the meeting concludes with a recognition and celebration of the many local businesses and organizations who exemplify aspects of resilience.
