TTKD January meeting - Guest speaker: Sustainability Educator & Consultant Howard Nielsen

The first Transition Kenmore meeting for 2010 will be on Jan 20th and feature Howard Nielsen from NAC consulting and the founder of Green Streets as our guest speaker.

Howard will address ways to bring sustainable practices into our daily lives as well as talking about GreenStreets. We have previously described Greenstreets on the blog so check out the link if you want some background, but basically it is a website for individuals and businesses that mixes social networking with a monthly carbon footprint calculator to encourage communities (not just individuals) to live more sustainability.

Howard's business NAC consulting focuses on helping to build sustainable businesses.
"Nielsen and Company believes that the world goes around a whole lot better when people have a significant level of control over their own lives. We also believe that people respond best when what they CAN do is tapped into rather than what they or others think they CAN'T do. This is why we focus on some of the sustainability building blocks that enable this to happen"

Don't miss this opportunity to learn some positive actions for a sustainable future!

Also since it is our first meeting for the year, we'd like to hear everyone's thoughts on what they would like to achieve this year as well as any thoughts on the plans for 2010 we have already.

Wed 20th 7:30pm: Uniting Church Hall
982 Moggill Rd Kenmore
