Visioning Atlanta's Path to Sustainability

Atlanta's first envisioning event for a sustainable Atlanta was a huge success! EnvisionATL sold out with more than 200 participants, representing 32 partner organizations and co-hosting non-profits as well as businesses, academic institutions, concerned citizens and 5 city of Atlanta departments. The energy and excitement around this event is a testament to the potential we have as Atlantans to create a vision for a more sustainable Atlanta and chart a path to realize this vision. EnvisionATL is presented by Sustainable Atlanta in conjunction with Mayor Reed and the City of Atlanta.

EnvisionATL is a forum based on the World Café discussion model designed to foster conversations from diverse constituents around an aspirational and shared vision for a more sustainable Atlanta. The first session was held on October 13, 2010. Anyone interested in helping build an aspirational and shared vision for a more sustainable Atlanta. Participants will represent academic institutions, businesses, faith-based, civic and environmental organizations, governmental agencies and other groups and individuals interested in bringing community resources closer together.

Stay tuned for the draft vision narratives, event photos, a video from Mayor Kasim Reed and a public comment period for air, land, water, and material resources, as well as information about our next event on
