We are a grassroots action group working to build a sustainable and resilient Albuquerque. We are kicking the fossil fuel habit as individuals, neighborhoods, and as a city. We are relocalizing our food, education, products, and jobs, which lowers the cost of living and improves our health and community spirit. Together, we are capable of coping with the economic and ecological crises that are already happening as we become interdependent yet self-reliant.
Join us for our monthly gatherings where we network, discuss sustainability and resilience in Albuquerque, get updates from our work groups, share food, scheme ideas, do activities, and learn something new.
Our next gathering is Wednesday, August 2nd, 6:30 – 8:30pm at First Unitarian Church (Carlisle & Comanche, map here) in the Wesson Room (across from the hall we’re usually in)
Building resilient neighborhoods, one street at a time
For this gathering, we’ll be talking about Transition Streets, a program to help neighbors come together to learn and implement practical actions to lower carbon footprints, conserve water, reduce waste, and strengthen communities. We’ll be going through the outline of the program, share some examples, and talk about how we can bring it to our neighborhoods. In preparation, check out our Get To Know Your Neighbors Summer 2017 Challenge.
What to bring:
- A dish to share for the potluck*
- A few dollars to contribute to the space*
- Your ABQ CO2 Pledge, if you have one, to share your journey at your table
*No one will be turned away. Please come even if you cannot contribute.
We hope to see you there!
