Green Tuesdays & Thursdays film and lecture series continues! For the complete schedule, see our GT&T calendar.
Since our Green Tuesdays & Thursdays program has grown to eight communities, people can enjoy it in many places and at many times! Upcoming films include: Waterlife, Fresh, Homo Toxicus, Waste Land, Carbon Nation, and For the Price of a Cup of Coffee. Each will be paired with a short film from Climate Wisconsin, showing a story of climate change from our own state.
Energ!ze Monona community forums are being facilitated by TNS Monona. Once per month from through February, our community gets to learn about and explore an energy topic, how it affects Monona, and what we can do about it. See this post with all the details or go to “upcoming events” at mymonona.com.
The Year of Water. In spring 2011,UW Nelson Institute Capstone Course students partnered with us to survey Monona residents on sustainability topics. Together with the fall 2011 class and the City of Monona, in 2012 we are taking residents’ top concern—water—and developing a year-long program of education, outreach, and projects around improving the ways we interact with it. In addition to the Water Conservation Challenge that provides great incentives to save water resources, we are working to engage other community groups in taking on a water projects of their own in 2012. Are you part of a group that is interested in learning more about water and/or doing something large or small to improve the way you interact with or manage it?
And we hope many Mononans decide to join in the Water Conservation Challenge to conserve water because you should and win prizes for doing it because you can!
“Almost Monthly Potlucks” are over for 2011, but will recommence in 2012.
