The Northwest Earth Institute was discussed noting their format of education is possibly a good idea (I’d argue minus the paper and the fees). I.e., reading assignments, discussion groups and actions.
It was agreed that we should come up with talking points, a platform and an educational “pamphlet” (hopefully it will stay online).
One member plans to contact a former official of the City of Appleton to enquire on the status of the plan for the new library. The possibility of using the library in raising awareness as well as possibly getting the most environmentally friendly build possible was discussed.
I contacted sent an email to an alderperson who it is thought will be interested in global warming issues. I asked about the existence of a carbon accounting office in the city of Appleton government, and in it’s absence whether we could create on in or out side of the city government.
Finally we discussed the library display case. Model(s), photos, digital picture frame and books were considered.
