spacer*
 Event Date(s):
Tuesday, February 15, 2011 spacer*spacer*spacer*

 City Agency:Environmental Sustainability
 Event Type:"Green" Bag Lunch-n-Learn
 Details:

Back by popular demand, on Tues. Feb. 15, Nick Kittle will share the unintended consequences of just a few well publicized 2010 budget cuts when seen through the sustainability lenses of people, planet and profit. The presentation, first given during the 2010 Southern Colorado Sustainability Conference, takes a challenging look at the balance between financial savings, community impacts and environmental stewardship after budget cuts to transit services, parks maintenance and streetlights. 

 

The lunch-n-learn runs over the noon lunch hour, from 12:11 to 12:49 p.m., at the City Administration Building, 30 S. Nevada, in Suite 102. Attendees are encouraged to bring and enjoy their lunches during the presentation. Those who come have the opportunity to win a door prize tote bag made from recycled City banners. 

 

The ?Triple Bottom Line? of economic, social and environmental success, also commonly referred to as the 3Ps of people, planet and profit, are often used to describe the components of sustainability. Sustainability was defined by Pikes Peak regional leaders in 2010 as acting in a manner that improves our quality of life by balancing economic vitality, a health vibrant community and mindful stewardship of the natural resources and environment for current and future generations.

 

Each month, the City Green Team sponsors a lunch-n-learn topic on environmental issues. Questions? Contact City of Colorado Springs Sustainability Coordinator Carrie McCausland, 719-385-CSGN (2746) or cmccausland@springsgov.com.
