Sustainability Forums is a Non-Profit Organization
We are using social media to market this organization, an example of Social Media for Social Sustainability. Marketing costs to publicize our events will thus be minimal. We recognize that there is nothing eco-friendly about printed materials as a primary means of publicizing our events. Flyer production will be very limited and produced in as eco-friendly a method as possible. For example, the one batch we did for this meeting was kindly produced by 22North on the back of their menus, 2-up on a page. Any monies that are collected for meeting or organization sponsorships will be used to support worthy non-profit organizations on Kauai.
22North Restaurant, which is itself a truly sustainable venture on Kauai, is our gracious host. 22North will be providing light snacks. There will be a cash bar to purchase drinks at reasonable prices.
22North is also kindly serving fresh coconut water from Honua Lani Gardens. The non-alcoholic version of this will be free to attendees.
Attendance is FREE of charge.
Koloa Rum Company, which produces Rum sustainably on Kauai, is kindly providing rum for the event so that 22North can prepare a delicious farm to bar, all eco-friendly cocktail for you to try at a discounted price. Wine and other beverages will also be available.
Aside from enjoying casual networking with like-minded individuals there will be a circle discussion following a few brief presentations:
Jai Roberts: Sustainable Gardening
Felicia Cowden: Akami Backyard
Lee Roversi: News from North Country Farms
Ken Stokes: inter-institutional Sustainability Action Team
Linda Sherman: Social Media for Social Sustainability
Attendee Circle Discussion Topic: What is your top of mind sustainability challenge?
Attendees will offer their suggestions.
Please RSVP on the Sustainability Forums Facebook event, or email us at: info at SustainabilityForums.org
