Sustainable Development Summit Planned

The President’s Council on Sustainable Development (PCSD) has begun a planning process for a National Summit on Sustainable Development scheduled to take place in early 1999 and is requesting ideas from the hydrogen community. The purpose of the summit is to catalyze a national movement toward sustainable development and to use the event as an opportunity to better articulate the concepts and opportunities of sustainable development to the American public.

The summit will bring together representatives from government, business, community, and nonprofit organizations to exchange information and learn from each other; and showcase ideas, technologies, and practices that reflect an integrated approach toward Americans’ economic, environmental, and social equity goals. The organizers want to celebrate successes, transfer lessons learned, and galvanize further action to implement sustainable development throughout the nation. Proposals have been made to hold accompanying regional and local events as well.

In an effort to make the planning process as participatory as possible, the PCSD is seeking your ideas and comments:
