Hello to some wonderful and amazing people!
Thank you so very much for participating in the first ever Sustainability Meet and Greet Coffees. We had 120 different participants, ranging from about 30 to 50 people each day. The discussions were lively and productive, with a number of new initiatives conceived and discussed. I would appreciate hearing from each of you about the ideas that you found most interesting and would like to see us pursue. I would also appreciate getting any feedback about the events, so we can improve for next time. Please email me directly with any suggestions and ideas you would like to share.
At the end of the today’s coffee, a number of people expressed interest in continuing these discussions. Gabriel Posluszny suggested we arrange to do regular brown bag lunches, beginning immediately on Tuesday at noon at Café Paradisio. I am sure these will turn into a regular event of some type, and we will be sure to keep you informed. Here is the official invitation to the first one. Gabriel has committed to being the anchor on Tuesday, so I’ve copied him here.
You are invited!
- Where: Café Paradisio, southwest corner of Lincoln Avenue and Nevada Street

Seeing the enthusiasm and excitement these coffees have built, I’d like to share the complete list of everyone who attended with all 120 of you. However, that was not the original intention, so please let me know (by next Friday) if you would prefer to not share your contact information with this group.
Again, thank you so much for spending time with us this week, and I look forward to working with all of you this year.
