Confronting Climate Change in Appalachia: ISF Meets with Climate Voices
As part of our annual ISF Board Retreat, the ISF Board met with the Board of Climate Voices US, just outside of their Boone, NC office. Chair Jefferson Boyer (who also sits on our ISF Board) brought the two groups together to discuss our shared goals and values in promoting a sustainable world. Thir mission is "to encourage energy conservation and to promote the use of renewable energy in the Boone, NC region and beyond. This is done through education, community building, increasing accessibility to professional energy-related services and by developing models in practice by other communities. The Initiative takes a pragmatic approach by encouraging people to prepare for their energy future as they would their financial future." Their Motto is: “Speak. Connect. Reduce. Produce."
