Sep 9: Sierra Club on Sustainability, pre-G20

Sustainability -- Do We Have What It Takes to Make It Happen? The Allegheny Group Sierra Club's monthly public meeting will be a prelude to the G-20 Conference, an open forum led by Court Gould (executive director of Sustainable Pittsburgh) and Bill O'Driscoll (environmental reporter and columnist for Pittsburgh's City Paper).

Sustainable Pittsburgh has been all over the news in the run-up to the G-20 Conference, as a “go-to” source for information on Pittsburgh’s plans for a sustainable future. Bill O’Driscoll has written for some 20 years on environmental matters, most recently about the facts, myths and challenges of sustainability. Join us for an open conversation with these two community leaders to clarify your own thinking in this vital area of environmental principles. There’s lots of hot air in this subject. Let’s see if there’s anything solid!

We’ll also have a fascinating update on August’s Gamesa wind turbine program.

7:30-9 p.m. at the Phipps Civic Garden Center (5th & Shady Avenues in Squirrel Hill); free & open to the public. Conversation and refreshments will follow the program. For more information, email Donald L. Gibbon or call 412-362-8451.
