Forum to explore sustainability


CLINTON — What does “sustainability” mean to you? To your city? To your country? And how do we get there from here?

Those are some of the questions that will be explored at the public forum to be held at The Canticle, home of the Sisters of St. Francis, 843 13th Ave. N., Clinton, on Sunday, June 12, from 2-3 p.m. Sponsored by the Clinton Franciscan Center for Active Nonviolence and Peacemaking, the event is free and does not require advance registration.

The forum is the result of programs held during the last year exploring topics ranging from local food to “greening” the holidays, from global warming to green cleaning.

According to the Center, the year-long Sustainable Clinton series demonstrated a desire to make Clinton a more environmentally friendly and resilient place to live.


To validate their observations, the Center has launched an online survey to assess local concerns and ideas to improve the sustainability of the area.

“We are seeking the input of involved citizens to assess the concerns of the community and to help determine a focus for future actions and the future of the Sustainable Clinton group,” said Laura Anderson, coordinator of the Center.
