Evanston Community Agenda

The agenda reflects the intentions for mobilizing CGE volunteers and connected neighbors as they work together to achieve broad sustainability goals within the City of Evanston. And, the agenda serves as an invitation to actively participate, connect and engage with others as we strive to improve Evanston’s capacity to address environmental, economic, and social equity goals.
