Austin Eco Change Exchange
Location: Austin City Hall

Four days after the inauguration of Austin's new City Council, the environmental community came together to send a strong signal to the new city council that we want a change in the direction of our city in light of the global and local economic and environmental crises. Our goal was "To awaken the dream of Austin as a leader among sustainable ciites, to weave our commuity relationships and to chart a course, rooted in justice to get us there." The event was highly successful, with over 250 people and 6 City Council Members including the Mayor attending. We collected many great ideas, built new relationships and now have a clearer sense of collective priorities. A report from the event is being prepared for the city council and we will request responses that will be shared with all participants.
