Carbondale, IL: 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 3:30 pm 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 considers the environment, economics, and equity. The afternoon opens with educational speakers who will address climate and the means for reaching a local resilient economy. That segment is followed by small-group discussions on how neighborhoods as well as the City as a whole can become more resilient, sustainable and equitable. As time allows, there will be networking among people and organizations who are advancing positive change. Participants can attend virtually via zoom, register at resiliencefairs.com.
