Here’s a collection of interesting local, organic, community, and/or green websites I’ve found recently:
Beyond Today – an organization (and a blog!) for Chicagoans who want to do more about the Environment and Social Justice. Interesting because they link to us (yay!) have great local and national links, innovative actions, and because somebody from their group is going to be in the new C3 class that starts Saturday. Welcome Julie!
BelieveChicago.org – sustainable city, the successor to the Building Green Bridges green events calendar. Anyone can post an event here. A good place to see what’s coming and also to share your own event and project invitations.
Edens Lost and Found – a PBS mini-series featuring Chicago’s own Michael Howard and other green good things happening in communities here, and in other big cities. They have a pile of resources and organizational links, discussion guides and such in their Chicago Action Guide. You can view the Chicago part of the documentary series, too.
EarthCharterChicago.org – the Chicago center of the Earth Charter community, interesting because they held a big summit event last year and this year are organizing many “mini-summits” they want to happen in living rooms all over the Chicago area. The offer a discussion guide for these.
Green Bean – a news and discussion forum dedicated to reporting on built, in-progress, and unbuilt green building projects in Chicago, written and maintained by Erik Olsen, PE. Erik is a mechanical engineer, green building advocate, and Green Projects Administrator for the Chicago Department of Construction and Permit, where he manages the Green Permit Program.
