2nd Delaware Environmental Summit

I reported on the first Delaware Environmental Summit back in January. Most of Delaware's environmental advocacy organizations came together to discuss priorities and strategy for the year. Now we are organizing a follow up:

The 2nd Delaware Environmental Summit
Saturday, November 14, 2008
8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Wilmington University, Dover

1. Support the ongoing advocacy work of Delaware’s environmental organizations.
2. Enhance the coordination among Delaware’s environmental organizations.
3. Where needed, foster new collaborative efforts among environmental advocates.
4. Engage new partners in environmental advocacy.

As we come towards the end of an eventful year, we are gathering to make plans for 2010. Please join us to discuss recent progress and make plans for environmental advocacy efforts for the coming year. Participants will be given a chance to discuss their priorities for the coming year and start to make detailed plans for collaborative efforts to achieve our objectives in the following areas:

Air Quality
Energy and Climate Change
Food and Agriculture
Green Economy
Land Use
Law and Regulation
Nature and Wildlife
Water Quality
Zero Waste

We are asking organizations to contribute $25 (covering all members of that organization) and unaffiliated individuals $5 to defray the cost of the Summit. Please bring your check or cash with you to the registration table at the Summit.

Directions to Wilmington University in Dover: The Dover campus is located on Route 13 North (at Scarborough Road), at the intersection of Exit 104 from Delaware Route 1.
