Sustainability Roundtable

Connecting Environmental Leaders

PEA's Sustainability Roundtable brings together leaders from across sectors to build the relationships and partnerships needed for local action on climate and environmental justice.
 
This biannual event began in October 2019 and re-launched in May 2022 to:

  • Build relationships and connections among individuals and groups working on environmental sustainability in Forsyth County and surrounding areas; 
  • Reach a better understanding of the range and depth of environmental programs and projects in Forsyth County and beyond; 
  • Identify new and expanded opportunities for partnership and collaboration in local environmental work; 
  • Assess what groups need to connect/collaborate and accomplish their goals.

May 2022 Sustainability Roundtable

May 2022 Sustainability Roundtable

In May 2022 PEA re-launched the Sustainability Roundtable, hosting more than 60 people from across sectors at the Enterprise Center in Winston-Salem.

Through engaging conversations on topics like food systems, education, the built environment, and more, we identified many important themes around local environmental issues. Some important needs identified include:

  • Our community needs resources and tools to engage citizens in education and action around climate change, air quality, and water pollution.
  • Our community needs strategies to address the effects of environmental hazards and injustices on low-income families.
  • Our community is set up to engage students but we need incentives for them to stay in the area and use their skills to help us solve local problems.

We are using these overview points and participant feedback to shape the agenda for another engaging Sustainabiltiy Roundtable in the fall of 2022.
