Sustainability is all around us.
The primary mission of the Task Force is to engage with our neighbors and elected officials to learn about and discuss issues that impact sustainability in our city. On the first Wednesday of the month at our meetings we invite partners in sustainability to discuss projects around the city and metro in an effort to better understand and uplift their work.
COVID-19 has brought changes to many aspects of business as usual for the Task Force, but has also opened the opportunity to record and share our First Wednesday featured guests. Below you will find our growing collection presentations by our partners in sustainability.
