Calgary Community Associations: Working towards Sustainability

Calgary’s Community Associations improve neighborhood life in our city every day. Join us to hear how three local Community Associations (CA) are working towards sustainability through their initiatives, approaches, and sustainability planning. Speakers from Killarney-Glengarry CA, Hillhurst Sunnyside CA, and Ramsay CA will provide short overviews of their efforts towards building great and sustainable communities. Come and learn about these important initiatives and participate in a lively discussion about what you and your community can do to further sustainability in our communities.

Please note - because of the Pathways 2 Sustainability Conference http://www.pathways2sustainability.ca/ on May 29th-31st, we are moving this breakfast to May 24th (instead of May 31st) to ensure everyone interested can attend both events!

Agenda:

· 7:30 - 8:00 am Breakfast and networking

· 8:00-8:05 am Welcoming remarks by Stephanie Jackman (REAP) and Carolyn Bowen (Office of Sustainability, The City of Calgary)

· 8:05-8:50 am Presentations

· 8:50-9:00 am Q&A and announcements

Sustainability for Breakfast is a monthly networking event co-organized by REAP and the Office of Sustainability at The City of Calgary. Our aim is to provide resources and build community to assist Calgarians in their efforts to build a more sustainable city.

Thanks to Café Beano for providing the Coffee and breakfast at this event!

Advance registration is required. Guests are welcome, but please ask them to register through the Meetup page.


This event is offered on a pay-what-you-can basis. Calgary Dollars accepted. All proceeds are directed to REAP's public outreach events and community programming.

    Hi everyone! Sorry for the late notice but I wanted to tell you about a new Meetup that Thrive & Momentum is putting on focusing on local business development, community development and the relationship between the two. Courtney and I would love it if you joined us. It's this evening at 6pm. Dinner will be served.

    CHARIOT FESTIVAL OF INDIA Everybody is invited to join us at this 3,000+ year old "festival of Jagunath" (origin of the English word "Juggernaut" meaning "unstoppable" ;-) which starts with hundreds of people pulling the 35 foot tall "chariot of the gods" through the streets of downtown Calgary finishing at the festival site where everybody is rewarded with FREE entertainment provided by an international troop of performers, a FREE vegetarian Indian lunch/food, FREE henna tatoos, etc... very cheap Indian clothing strting at $5/t-shirt...

      About 5,000 people are expected to attend this event which is Calgary's most eco-friendly (the gods are chariot-pooling ;-) and Calgary's most animal-friendly festival (humans pull the chariot, not animals ;-) If only all Calgarians could learn how to car-pool to work, not enslave/exploit animals and eat vegetarian Indian food, this would be a much better world!

      12 pm Chariot parade starts at Olympic Plaza and heads west on 8th Av. 2pm Parade reaches the Milleniam Park festival site (Between 6th Av and 9th Av. SW, West of Planetarium and Mewata Armoury).

    This was an excellent session. One of the best. Presentations from three remarkable community leaders who understand the carbon dilemma we face, but are also focused on maintaining community identities, sense of place, engagement, and finding solutions. Very inspiring. Thank you!

    EcoLiving Events is hosting their annual EcoLiving Tour on Saturday, June 8th from 9:00am-3:00pm. Cost $30

    Join us us on the tour bus and learn about sustainable developments, alternative energy sources, and permaculture. There will be knowledgeable facilitators at each of the 5 venues as well as a facilitator on the bus to continue the conversations.

    The EcoLiving Tour is very important for people who are either building a new home or retrofitting an existing home as they can ask all the questions about challenges, costs and long term savings.

    For more information please go to www.ecolivingevents.ca

    MARCH AGAINST MONSANTO, TOMORROW

    MAY 25, 12pm noon, City Hlalll.

    MONSANTO CRIMINALITY/FRAUD/CORRUPTION is directly responsible for suicides of 64,000 Indian farmers every year, the firing of several Health Canada research scientists who refused to approve their dangerous Bovine Growth Hormone, the destruction & poisoning of food supplies, and countless human/animal health problems/deaths etc. all around the world...

    The current Canadian government is insanely destroying our democracy, our agricultural industry, and the research wing of AG Canada in their desperate attemts to cater to Monsanto... Obama just approved the "Monsanto Protection Law" giving Monsanto immunity from US courts....

    Amazingly good documentary films about Monsanto's exploiits around the world that you can watch online: http://meetup.com/vegeatup/messages/boards/forum/1037601?forumId=1037601
