Join a Working Group
One of the many ways to get involved with Sustainable Cleveland is to join an active working group. Working groups are community-based and volunteer-led groups formed during one of the Sustainable Cleveland Summits. Working group members help set the direction of the group, serve on event planning committees or volunteer for upcoming events. New members are always welcome to any of the working groups.
If you would like more information about any of the working groups or ideas about how you can get involved, please contact the Sustainable Cleveland Coordinator, Cathi Lehn (firstname.lastname@example.org).
