ANN ARBOR: Sustainability forums to be held at Ann Arbor District Library

The city of Ann Arbor and the Ann Arbor District Library are collaborating to host a series of sustainability forums.

City staff, University of Michigan faculty, and representatives from community organizations will discuss local sustainability concepts and efforts – past, present and future – at the 2013 Sustainable Ann Arbor forums.

Building on the public forums from last year, the 2013 forums will focus on planning for change in the community. The series will include four events organized around four of the city’s sustainability goals.

The events will be held monthly from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Ann Arbor District Main Library, 343 S. Fifth Ave., January through April. Dates and topics for the events are as follow:

Jan. 9: Sustainable Systems, including the impacts of current and predicted weather changes in the community and on the city’s constructed and natural infrastructure. Speakers will include Matthew Naud, Ann Arbor’s environmental coordinator; Dan Brown, research associate, University of Michigan Great Lakes Integrated Sciences and Assessments; Jen Lawson, Ann Arbor’s water quality manager; Cresson Slotten, Ann Arbor’s Systems Planning Unit manager; Rick Norman, Ann Arbor’s director of Emergency Management; and Jason Frenzel, Huron River Watershed Council Adopt-A-Stream and Stewardship coordinator.

Feb. 13: Economic Vitality, including opportunities to invest in the local economy and to build a strong sense of place in the community
