City of Ann Arbor 2016 Sustainable Ann Arbor Forum: Resource Management

Thursday February 4, 2016: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room

This event will be recorded

Join the conversation about sustainability in Ann Arbor as the City and the Ann Arbor District Library host their annual Sustainable Ann Arbor series. The series will include four events (held monthly through April) with each focusing on a different element of sustainability from Ann Arbor’s Sustainability Framework.

The second event in this series centers on Resource Management, including discussions about improving Ann Arbor’s waste diversion rate and community-wide efforts to reduce different waste streams.

A think tank of local stakeholders including representatives from community organizations, staff from both the City of Ann Arbor and Washtenaw County will join the public to discuss local sustainability efforts and challenges in our community. Each program will include a series of short presentations followed by a question and answer session.

The forums offer an opportunity to learn more about sustainability in the community and tips for actions that residents can take to live more sustainably.

Speakers for the Resource Management discussion include:

o Roger Bowser, Managing Partner, Zingerman's
o Eileen Spring, President and CEO, Food Gatherers
o Noelle Bowman, Solid Waste Specialist, Washtenaw County
o Tracy Artley, Sustainability Programs Coordinator, U-M Plant Building & Grounds Services
o Matt Naud, Environmental Coordinator, City of Ann Arbor

Details of this series will be posted online on The City of Ann Arbor's Sustainability site. For information and videos from current and past Sustainable Ann Arbor Forums, please visit the City’s Sustainability website.
