The Fox Valley Sustainability Network is forming. Be part of creating a healthy, sustainable Fox Valley.
The Fox Valley Sustainability Network brings together the public and private sectors from around the Fox Valley to cut across boundaries and create a healthy, sustainable and vibrant Fox Valley.
The last FVSN solar-focused forum on June 8 at Two Brothers Roundhouse was informative and inspirational. Participants got to learn about the opportunities for both private companies and public agencies surrounding clean energy. Not only is clean energy good for the planet, it's also economically responsible. After learning from some solar experts in the Fox Valley region, including Steve Johnson of Convergence Energy, Dr. Everton Walters of WCP Solar, Larry Kotewa of Elevate Energy, and Jen Walling of the Illinois Environmental Council, attendees broke into groups to discuss specific ways we can advance clean energy initiatives in the region, especially as they relate to the six other topic areas: water, transportation, food, waste, economic development, energy, and green infrastructure.
Check back soon for updates on our next forum, taking place in fall 2016.
The Fox Valley Sustainability Network will be an ongoing entity working on various issues and projects within the Valley. It will marry a strong communications infrastructure with a series of action-oriented events to connect the dots as we seek to remake our communities and create an environmentally sustainable region. To be successful, we’ll need your help and participation.
The Fox Valley Sustainability Network is a project of Seven Generations Ahead, City of Aurora, Kane County, and a5 Branding and Digital in collaboration with Fox Valley communities and counties.
