Mission Statement Brainstorming

Draft statement that was discussed at our first meeting:
  • The Sustainability Committee is committed to providing tools to all Downtown stakeholders to make more sustainable choices where they live, work and play.

    We will work with the community to develop a building-by-building strategy for Downtown Los Angeles through parternship and planning to empower stakeholders to foster a healthy, sustainable environment.
Brainstorming: define tools; mission statement should help us determine objectives; what is our scope? community versus buildings; cultural shift and education; fill the gap not yet approached by existing green building programs; mission statement should be short; building-by-building is one strategy; definition of sustainabilty to be added.

Please feel free to propose a revised mission statement. This feedback will be incorporated for review/approval of the Mission Statement at the next regularly scheduled meeting on November 17, 2008 at 6:30pm at the Ardas Cafe.
