November 25, 2008

Local food economy is something we’re impressed by and can it move in concert with land management and have city Cleveland totally powered by renewable resources in 2019. Large scale wind farm. Cleveland as a model for everyone else . People will come here to learn about sustainable land and energy policy; Benson Lee Cleveland entrepreneur his company invented a fuel cell that can transform our energy use and also our thinking — his vision is to sell it to developing countries that don’t have the electric grid.

How do we tap into that kind of innovation — looking for tapping into the hardworking nature of cleveland. People need to know what to do, once they figure out what . . We’re waiting for the innovation to be communicated. They’re out there, but people don’t know what they are.

I think we need electro shock therapy . We need to do it for ourselves. People are a squandered resource. The lost human capital – Do we have an attitude that we we can buy our way to purity.

Welcome to Cleveland’s New Story

November 18, 2008

On November 25th, 2008, we expect over 200 people to come together and create a new story about Cleveland.

A story based on world-class sustainability initiatives and innovations from within our region. A story that evolves with every new project, every new leader, and every new relationship. A story that’s led by the local champions whose names we will speak when our grandchildren ask how we created a green city on blue lake.

Going into it, we know we have much to be proud of – wind on the lake, an Eco-Village in the city, fresh food on every corner, pioneering green jobs training, and a network of champions just to name a few – but by the time we draw to a close, we expect many more stories, questions, and dreams of the future to have emerged.

This blog is a living harvest of those stories, questions, and dreams – an online space to capture the evolution of our community intelligence and wisdom which, if we nurture and use wisely, will guide us towards a truly sustainable future.

What’s your story?
