Welcome to the Sierra Club Iroquois Group
The purpose of this site is to enhance communication and participation of Sierra Club members and concerned citizens in preserving our environment.
This is an invitation to change everything.
In September, world leaders are coming to New York City for a UN summit on the climate crisis. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is urging governments to support an ambitious global agreement to dramatically reduce global warming pollution.
Neil Seldman is co-founder and president of the Institute for Local Self-Reliance. He is senior staff for ILSR's Waste to Wealth Initiative, which has been at the forefront of the push to move from burn and bury policies to recycling and economic development. Seldman specializes in helping cities recover more materials from the waste stream and add value locally through processing and manufacturing. Join us for this unique opportunity to hear from this national figure, who will discuss the challenges posed by our incinerator and municipal waste stream, as well as the job opportunities linked to waste recycling.
