As I mentioned in my post “The Climate Heats Up AND The Mayor Has A Website?”, the Town is hosting an all day “conversation” on climate change (as part of our Town’s ongoing commitment to sustainability).
The advertisement on the Mayor’s (www.chapelhillmayorsoffice.com) website says the program is FREE but the link takes you to this Chamber of Commerce signup page that only lists an October 4th Sustainability Workshop costing $30 for non-members.
I’ve sent an email to Director Aaron Nelson asking for a clarification.
Here’s the program:
- Lyle Estill, Piedmont Biofuels (biodiesel, sustainable community design, sustainability movement)
- David Lee, Bland Landscaping
- Tobin Freid, Triangle Clean Cities Program
- Eric Henry, T.S. Designs
- Greg Overbeck, Chapel HIll Restaurant Group
- Kevin Foy, Mayor of the Town of Chapel Hill
- Anne Waple, National Climatic Data Center, NESDIS
- Cindy Pollock Shea, Director of UNC Sustainability of Office
- Tom Jensen, North Carolina Sierra Club
2007 Sustainability Workshop
Location: Town of Chapel Hill Public Library, 12:00 pm – 4 :00 pm

2007 National Conversation on Climate Change
6:00-7:30 pm National Conversation on Climate Change Workshop
Program Agenda: TBA
This program is free and open to the public.
For additional information about this event please email the Mayor’s Office, firstname.lastname@example.org.
An interesting program, though it’s not clear from the schedule when or how the “conversation” will occur. We’ve had some great local success using an unconference format to stimulate, educate and inform the public on technical issues.
Maybe the evening program could be reserved for a “conversation” built around and directed by the attendees?
