Where to in the future? With so little interest in climate change in the face of increasing and definitive evidence of its impending impacts, we are concerned about how we can positively deal with these and other critical social issues. However, we remain optimistic that the people who really care about a fair and prosperous future for all will remain active and effective as we move forward. As Margaret Mead said, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."

We look forward to working with you as this and the next year progresses! If you are interested, you can keep in touch with us through Facebook and Linkedin which we will be using more this year.
