Sustainable Shelby Call to Action!

Sustainable Shelby
Call to Action!

Memphis Botanic Garden

Memphis, Tennessee 38117

You are invited to join Mayor A C Wharton in launching the Sustainable Shelby Agenda, our community's first comprehensive agenda that is equal parts sustainability, smart growth, green building, and more. This agenda was produced from committees and public polling that converged to create detailed recommendations for a sustainable future.

This Sustainable Shelby Call to Action meeting will announce the agenda for the future and next steps to accomplish them. Special remarks will be made by Doug Farr, author of Sustainable Urbanism, the seminal book that set the context for our local agenda.

Please invite your friends and colleagues to be part of this history-making meeting.

As background you might listen to this great Smart City Radio interview with Doug Farr (my favorite parts: moving past the widget, stop trying to sell sacrifice, and the 2030 challenge).
