How Love of Community Drives Grassroots Sustainability

2-2-2017 at 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Biophilia: Pittsburgh February Meeting

The Thurs., Feb. 2 Biophilia: Pittsburgh meeting will feature Millvale Sustainability Coordinator Zaheen Hussain, who will lead a discussion on “How Love of Community Drives Grassroots Sustainability.” A native of Bangladesh and a Pittsburgh transplant by way of Connecticut, Zaheen serves as Millvale’s sustainability coordinator. Supported by the Millvale Community Library, and working with the Millvale EcoDistrict Collaborative, Zaheen’s efforts are a shared community resource that helps advance Millvale’s EcoDistrict goals in the areas of food, water, energy, mobility, air quality, and equity. Prior to his work in Millvale, Zaheen worked on various sustainability initiatives as a project manager at GTECH Strategies. Focusing primarily on energy efficiency, Zaheen helped lead the ReEnergize Pittsburgh Coalition, where he worked collaboratively to increase demand for energy efficiency services by bridging organizational partnerships and increasing community level advocacy and educational programming.

Meetings are free to attend; however, advance registration is required.

Biophilia: Pittsburgh is the pilot chapter for a global Biophilia Network of creative minds dedicated to strengthening the bond between people and the natural world through education, discussion and action.
