On Sunday, September 7th, people across the country will gather for watch-parties and screenings to watch a new movie about the climate movement. EarthWorks and Sustainable Skaneateles will be hosting the screening at St. James Parrish Hall at 6:30 PM.
This film weaves together political intrigue, mind-blowing science, and an insider’s view of the largest climate mobilization in history. It’s got some folks you might find familiar (like Bill McKibben and Naomi Klein), and also brings some fresh faces and powerful new stories to the fore.
Sustainable Skaneateles is holding a Re-Bike Event on Saturday June 7th at Allyn Arena in conjunction with the Re-Market which takes place at the Allyn Arena Parking lot.
Sustainable Skaneateles is focusing our 2014 efforts on the 7 Rs. We will be encouraging community residents, the village and town governments, as well as the schools to rethink what we usually toss in the garbage and make a concerted effort to decrease the amount of waste we produce.
Sustainable Skaneateles is encouraging the entire community to participate in the global initiative called Earth Hour. On Saturday 29 March 2013 at 8:30 PM hundreds of millions of people across the world will switch lights off for an hour to raise awareness for the planet. By taking part in this global ‘lights out’ event we will be acknowledging our commitment to a personal action that benefits the planet in the year ahead. Check out our events page for more information.
Sustainable Skaneateles will showcase homes and farms in the area that have invested in renewable energy. Our “Alternative Energy Tour” will feature several solar powered homes, geothermal heating, and solar water projects as well as the new net zero energy Skaneateles Village Office building, which will be the homebase for the tour. The Village Hall will also host “green” vendors and exhibitors.
Sustainable Skaneateles encourages all our community residents to become familiar with the Onondaga County Sustainable Development Plan. The Plan is a tool which focuses on land use and sustainable development patterns. The plan directs the County policies and informs local governments, stakeholders, and residents.
