About this Calendar

Why was this calendar created? 

To help publicize events, avoid date conflicts, demonstrate the level of activity in building resilience & sustainability in our communities and to help create connections between organizations.

What types of events are listed in the calendar?

Public events sponsored by local organizations that promote the development of green, resilient & sustainable communities (earth care, people care, fair share). Municipalities, educational institutions, non-profits, faith groups and non-partisan organizations list their events in this calendar.

Sustainability is “meeting the present needs of society without compromising the needs of future generations.”  

~ United Nations Brundtland Commission, 1987

 

Resilience is “the capacity of individuals, communities, institutions, businesses, and systems … to survive, adapt, and grow no matter what kinds of chronic stresses and acute shocks they experience.”

 ~ Resilient Cities Network

 

Green means advancing environmentally friendly practices to meet the needs of the community.

Who manages the calendar?

The calendar is coordinated and maintained by Transition Newburyport and Storm Surge.
