  • Potluck – bring healthy stuff to share with others
  • Viewing of Earth 2100
  • Discussions of sustainability in 2010
  • Possibilities and opportunities

Earth 2100 is part documentary, part graphic novel, part cautionary tale. Though it was broadcast earlier this year, it was poorly advertised and many people missed it. If you haven’t seen it, this is an opportunity. If you have, come anyway and join us in looking forward to 2010 – to new possibilities for NJ, for the Sustainable Business Incubator, for the Sustainable Leadership Forum, for Community Green, and more – and for bringing it all home to our neighborhoods and our communities.

My best regards,

Jonathan Cloud

Leadership Quotes

"Nearly every man who develops an idea works it up to the point where it looks impossible, and then he gets discouraged. That's not the place to become discouraged."
(Thomas A. Edison—thanks to Regan Caton)

"Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” (G.B. Shaw)

"There is the true joy of life: to be used by a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; to be thoroughly worn out before being thrown on the scrap heap; to be a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that life will not devote itself to making you happy." (G.B. Shaw)

"Leadership is a privilege to better the lives of others. It is not an opportunity to satisfy personal greed." (Mwai Kibaki, President of Kenya - thanks to Christine Comaford, Rules for Renegades)
