Greener Grove held its first meeting in January and has hit the ground running! In the past several months we've:
Connected with a growing circle of friends, neighbors, and other organizations in Downers Grove who are committed to the idea that we can all make a difference in protecting, preserving and creating a more green community.
Reached out to candidates in the April 4th election to ask about green initiatives they would put in place if elected and shared their responses with our community.
Launched the Greener Grove website as a community hub for keeping folks up to date on local initiatives, events, and resources to tap into and take action on as we all reimagine a greener future for Downers Grove.
Greener Grove is organized into four subgroups - members can participate in one or several! The subgroups are:
Community Activism - Engages with our community through tangible actions. Coordinates the ongoing activities of the group. These actions further our group's goals and mission.
Communications - Promotes the work of the group to raise awareness and participation.
Political Partnerships - Steers the group’s efforts to collaborate with community leaders. Monitors the ongoing political activities within the community and manages our voice to enact sustainable environmental action.
Projects - Drives the regular selection of directives taken on by the group. These larger projects, taking a year or more, are selected by the full group to represent the interests of the membership. These initiatives and activities are driven by our goals to achieve a “Greener Grove”.
