Sustainable Development Summit Planned
The Presidents 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:
Please send written comments by Monday, 24 November

Council on Sustainable Development, 730 Jackson Place, N.W., Washington,
DC 20503, U.S.A. eMail: [email protected].
