Summer membership meeting focuses on local activism through art

breakout group

Thank you to everyone who came out to our Summer 2023 Quarterly Meeting! Whether you were a long-time member of the network, or someone entirely new, all of the energy you brought to the event made it a success, and we hope you had a wonderful time. We heard amazing presentations from the Praise House Project, giving important space for the arts and humanities in sustainability here in Greater Atlanta. We got everyone moving around, connecting with each other through a networking activity, and hearing about RCE Greater Atlanta programs in small groups. Plus, so many of our members shared their cooking talents, generously bringing food for the potluck.

You can still join to help with any of the RCE's projects that include:

  • hosting the RCE Americas Meeting in late September (contact Kris Chatfield),
  • continuing the sustainable profession mentorship program (contact Mark Lannaman),
  • building the student ambassador program across all local colleges and universities (contact Perrin Brady or Amani Allen-Beale),
  • and initiating additional community partnerships like the one with the Praise House Project (contact Jenny Hirsch).
interns lead the meeting

Also, a big shout out to our interns who led the show at the meeting that they had invested so much time organizing!

We hope you were also able to see the Sweet Auburn Avenue Water Tower after the meeting. Artist-activist Charmaine Minniefield led an inspiring visit to her beautiful mural inside the tower, where the acoustics were incredible!
