Regenerative Recovery Coalition
Inaugural Meeting of the Regenerative Recovery Coalition
Tuesday, November 18, 2020, 1-3 p.m. MST
A regenerative recovery is one that will build a robust, localized economy that meets human needs abundantly and equitably provides clean water, air, energy and food. Join us on Wednesday, November 18, to make this regenerative future a reality in Colorado!
Many are focusing on how we can return to “normal.” Here at The Alliance Center we realize there can be no return to what was once considered normal.
We are partnering with Natural Capitalism Solutions, Greener Solutions, the Polis Administration and thought leaders from across the state to build a plan that ensures a better future for all Coloradans. The coalition will be charged with tackling some of the biggest issues facing Colorado in the following areas: climate change, economy, workforce development, food systems, agriculture, infrastructure, natural resource management, transportation and democracy. We call upon you to be part of Colorado’s regenerative recovery.
At the inaugural convening of the Regenerative Recovery Coalition, you’ll learn more about:
==What we are | The origin of the coalition
==Who we are | The organizers and participants in the coalition
==Why this work is needed | The necessary changes for Colorado’s future
Join us from 1-3 PM MST on November 18. Breakout groups will discuss how to make the coalition effective and how to shape our future. This is a working session—the first of many as we Build Colorado Forward.
