What we're about

At the heart of sustainability, lies the simple quest for a better way of life, now, and into the future. Measured primarily in the balanced relationships between the three “E’s:” Economy, Ecology, and Equity.

Economy: to be self-renewing; foster local commodities; and ensure self- reliance.

Ecology: to understand that nature has its threshold capacities, while protecting and building natural resources in order to create a holistic balance between man and nature.

Equity: to provide full opportunity for access and engagement in activities, benefits, and invaluable decision-making strategies for a society.

========================================================

We seek to ensure that people’s needs, hopes, and dreams are obtainable through thorough understandings of these inter-dependencies. Our mission is to build friendly and sustainable fellowships through the passionate exchanges of knowledge and shared expertise.

We may have scheduled meeting with guest speaker’s appearance from a quantifiable expert in his or her field. We learn. We share our knowledge and help benefit our Atlanta and metro Atlanta communities with our shared interest in environmental sustainability. We offer the ability to get involved in action service in sustainability.

From time to time, we travel to local areas in search of new skills, new finds, and new understandings: an organic farm, a cannery, a renewable eco-site, a market, a study on perma-culture, or a heritage crafts lesson.

We hope that you will join our circle of friends soon!

Special Virtual Documentary Night: Milked

Needs a location

**YOU MUST WATCH THE FILM ON YOUR OWN BEFORE THE EVENT!**
Link to the film is in the info below.

This Virtual Documentary Night is in collaboration Plant Based Emory (PBE) and Plant Powered Metro New York (PPMNY). PBE is a student-led organization at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. They act as a support for anyone who is vegan, vegetarian, or interested in learning more about the lifestyle. They work to educate the Emory community on where their food comes from, as well as how animals are treated for clothing, entertainment, and lab experiments. PPMNY is a non-profit organization located in New York. They empower people to find better health and overcome chronic disease through whole food, plant-based nutrition. They offer evidence-based education, resources, and support to create community and inspire change throughout the New York metropolitan area.

We are meeting in honor of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month to talk about the documentary, Milked. Māori activist Chris Huriwai goes deep into dairy land and takes on the giants of New Zealand’s most powerful industry, revealing how the sacred cash-cow industry has been milked dry. His journey exposes not only the sustainability crisis and the dangerous denial of impending agricultural disruption, but also what New Zealand and other countries can do to change their fate. Chris Huriwai will also be joining us for a special guest Q&A! Here is a link to where you can watch it for free. https://youtu.be/MCwpsMtmMhM

Again, you must watch the film on your before the event. We will be meeting over Zoom, where we will break out into small discussion groups. We will do multiple rounds of small group discussion, then close out the night with the special guest Q&A! The Zoom information is listed below.

Meeting ID:[masked]
Passcode:[masked]

This event is hosted with multiple meetup groups, including the Atlanta Social Friends, Austin Documentary Fans, Atlanta Volunteer Meetup, the Ethical Humanists of Atlanta, Sunday Assembly Atlanta, and the Vegan Social Club. Therefore those in attendance will be from varying backgrounds and beliefs. This is in order to provide an opportunity to hear a wide range of perspectives.

This event is open to all who are open to all. The one thing we ask is that people allow others to get their full thought out and that any disagreement is voiced in a civil way. You can check out the Community Documentary Night website for more info or links to previously shown documentaries.

Thank you and hope to see you there!
