Craig chosen as host site for roundtable discussion

The city of Craig has been selected as one of nine regional hosts for the 2010 Colorado Sustainability Roundtable series, organized by the Alliance for Sustainable Colorado, a non-profit agency founded in 2004.

“The roundtables bring together leaders from non-profits, businesses, government agencies and educational institutions to share key issues and challenges, as well as best practices and lessons learned related to sustainability,” according to a news release from the Alliance for Sustainable Colorado. “Collaborative roundtable activities enable people in the various sectors to make contacts and build relationships that foster a statewide sustainability network.”

According to the alliance, representatives from an area engineering company, Colorado Northwestern Community College, the Craig City Council, the Rio Blanco County planning department and the Colorado Workforce Center’s Craig office have confirmed attendance. Also, alliance officials reported, invitations have been sent out to other local government, business, non-profit and education representatives.

The Craig roundtable is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Thursday at the Moffat County Fairgrounds Pavilion.

Other host sites include Fort Morgan, Rifle, Durango, Gunnison, Denver, Lamar, Loveland and Colorado Springs.

Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

Fort Morgan, Rifle, Loveland and Colorado Springs have already hosted discussions, while Durango, Gunnison, Denver and Lamar have events upcoming.

The alliance agency will share Thursday information learned from 2009 roundtables and results from a pre-roundtable survey of participants. The group will also ask for collaboration on statewide sustainability campaigns.
