Candidate’s Forum for Environmental Issues

October 9, 2016 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Environmental Stewardship Greensboro (ESG), and NC Interfaith Power and Light (NCIPL) are co-hosting a Candidates Forum at 2:30 pm, on Sunday afternoon, October 9, 2016, to explore candidates’ views on key environmental issues that the General Assembly and U.S. Congress will face during the 2017-18 sessions.  

The forum will be at the Kathleen Clay Edwards Family Branch Library, 1420 Price Park Drive, starting at 2:30 pm.  This forum will be an opportunity to discuss the future of renewable energy in North Carolina, the state and federal governments’ approach to climate change, clean power, clean water, clean air and other issues that affect our environment.  All candidates for North Carolina House and Senate and U.S. House of Representatives seats serving Guilford County have been invited to attend and answer questions on environmental priorities.

Please contact Bill McNeil at mcneilplanning@gmail.com with questions and to rsvp.

Environmental Stewardship Greensboro (ESG) is an interfaith volunteer organization that works to encourage sustainable life-style practices within faith communities and among all the residents of Guilford County.  ESG has representatives from over 20 different congregations within Guilford County. We span great differences in personal belief and congregational life but we all agree that  caring for the natural world is a prime spiritual imperative as well as a practical one.

Our actions are focused on establishing a sustainable natural environment by working with our home congregations to further our understanding of Nature and Mankind’s impact on it. We promote native plants and gardening, recycling, and educating our congregational memberships about the natural world we live in. We work with the religious educators of our member congregations to foster connections among our youth and the natural world. We advocate governmental action with a focus on increasing energy efficiency, developing clean and renewable energy resources, and decreasing carbon pollution.

Because ESG believes that caring for the natural world is a spiritual imperative as well as a practical one, one of our missions is to track Environmental Issues in our governance and keep our member congregations informed and active when important issues are under consideration.
