Current CSLN Initiatives

 

 Working Groups and Collaborative Projects

Policy Working Group

Previous work
     -  Roundtable meetings (March, July)
     -  Sustainable Chicago input
     - 
Recycling

The main arenas of action moving forward were following up on the recycling partnership, revisiting regular meetings with sustainability officials, and exploring the possibility of renewable energy as a second content focus area. One key next step is a follow up meeting with the City and Chris Wheat. To join the policy group contact Seva Gandhi, This email address is being protected from spambots.

Collaborative Event Series

This group's goal is to coordinate a series of events to spark dialogue, culminating in a final celebration. Several topic areas were introduced, including awareness of sustainability assets, non-violence, and connecting people to nature. As of August 2017, a key next step for this group is clarifying the theme, timeline, and potential partners.To get involved and join the August team meeting, contact Samantha Sainsbury at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Collaborative Publication

 

This group explored the possibility of creating a publication to showcase innovative sustainability programming in Chicago, starting with CSLN members. They discussed potential benefits for the network, opportunities to collaborate with other institutions, and content organization. Next steps for this group are looking at funding opportunities and creating and piloting a reporting format for members to share their stories.

Do you have an project or initiative to share with the CSLN? Would you like to involve other members in a collaborative project?

Review the collaborative CSLN event guidelines that answer questions including

  • What is a CSLN activity?
  • What makes an activity a CSLN activity rather than just my organization’s regular work?
