Recognizing those who Live Sustainably
The Catskill Center’s 42nd Annual Meeting will be held on July 16, where we will be recognizing individuals and organizations who have made outstanding contributions in community development, education, arts & culture or natural resource protection in the Catskills.
Each year the Annual Meeting focuses on a theme that we consider to be currently prominent in the Catskills and relates to our activity. In 2011, the theme of the Annual Meeting is “Living Sustainably.” We will showcase a solar array we are installing at the Catskill Center and the release of the new curriculum developed by the Catskill Center: Sustainable Catskills. We will also recognize Catskill Region residents and organizations that practice sustainable living, using a system to meet present needs without compromising those of future generations.
We seek your help in finding individuals and organizations who deserve recognition for displaying through their behavior and lifestyle: the ability to meet their resource needs while preserving biodiversity and natural ecosystems; efficient practice in renewable energy; measures to reduce environmental impacts (including carbon footprint) and abate climate change; planning and acting for the ability to maintain economic potential and preservation of natural resources for future generations.
