Mt. Horeb discussion group begins Jan. 14

Monday, January 12, 2009

From a post on the Sustain Dane listserve:

If you live in Mt Horeb, surely there could be nothing more meaningful and stimulating than attending this start up discussion group!

Discussion Group to Begin Wednesday, January 14

Several Mount Horeb residents are organizing a discussion group using the book The Natural Step for Communities to gain an understanding of the Natural Step process, a scientifically based framework for economic, environmental and social viability.

Used in over 70 countries, it guides individuals, organizations and communities toward sustainability through proven steps that allow for self-determined, situation-appropriate paths that are systemic, long-term and flexible in regard to future actions.

Municipalities and businesses use The Natural Step process to create economic gains along with social and environmental ones.

Eleven Wisconsin communities have officially adopted The Natural Step eco-municipality resolutions and dozens of other communities have active groups.
Companies like IKEA, Electrolux, Starbucks and Nike actively use The Natural Step principles.

The first organizational meeting will be held at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, January 14 at the Mount Horeb Community Center at 102 N. Grove Street.

For more information, contact Marcia Hartwig at 437-7811.

Learn how you can be part of a process of creating a Mount Horeb that not only survives in the future, but thrives in the future.

We need you! Please join us!
