Leadership Circle

Growing Climate Solutions – Path to Positive Southwest Florida convened an initial meeting of its Leadership Circle on March 10 in Naples, where nearly 60 thought leaders representing the fields of health, education, faith, business, environment and philanthropy reviewed scientific data and began exploring possible solutions to counter climate trends.

Attendees were asked to identify possible courses of action that could reduce their carbon footprint, or that of their organization, and help mitigate the changing climate. Ideas filled more than 230 sticky notes, and included action items like purchasing electric vehicles for their companies, establishing a carpool-to-work initiative, creating a community garden, switching to LED lighting, installing native landscaping, emphasizing recycling, installing solar panels, discouraging the use of Styrofoam and plastic bottles, printing fewer documents and more. The “Gallery of Ideas” stretched across an entire wall at the Leadership Circle meeting.
