If you believe our community is stronger when we work together and that your life is better as a part of that community then join us for “Civic Engagement: Tools for Collaborative Impact”, an afternooon of presentations, discussion and, you guessed it, collaboration. We will examine engagement on three fronts:
- political — exercising our power to affect local policies and practices
- community/neighborhood — developing leadership in neighborhood organizing
- commercial — keeping the fruits of our labor local
If you are already substantively engaged in the community, get some ideas on how to be more effective. If you haven’t been engaged, but want to, look to this event as a jump start. Whatever your level of engagment it will be an opportunity to get up to speed on what others are doing and discover ways we can boost each others efforts.
It all happens on Sunday, January 31, from 1:00 to 4:00 PM at the Oakwood Community Center (corner of Hoosick and Tenth Streets).
Transition Troy is a collection of groups and individuals with a positive vision of a sustainable Troy, acting on that vision and building that future.
Some of the projects we are working on are listed below. This is also built as a resource for anyone looking for information on living more sustainably and locally here in Troy:
- Food (Needs a Curator)
- Zero Waste
In April 2015 we had a celebration.
