Seventh Generation Supper

Join Transition Fidalgo & Friends for a community supper on Tuesday, February 27, at 5:45 pm at the Anacortes Senior Center, 1701 22nd St.>

Our presentation this evening is Skagit County’s Clean Tech Sector: Exploring Trends and Opportunities, by Sean Connell. Sean is Director of Business Development and Global Competitiveness at the Economic Development Alliance of Skagit County (EDASC) in Mount Vernon. Before that, he served as Snohomish County’s director of trade and economic development, and worked for many years in Washington, DC and overseas on projects related to U.S. economic and trade relations with Asia, particularly Japan and South Korea.

Transition Fidalgo’s “Vision 2030” identified strategies for supporting the development of Anacortes and Skagit County as a hub of green business innovation, including high-potential sustainable industries.  What is currently happening in Skagit County in these areas, and where are there potential opportunities for Skagit County to grow this sector?  More broadly, what would help support Skagit County to become a leader in developing products, technologies, and ideas that advance sustainability while supporting a resilient economy?

Open to all and welcome; no reservations necessary. Suggested supper donation $5/adult; $3/10 and under.  Please bring your own place settings, or simply join us for the presentation around 7:00. Seventh Generation Suppers include a sharing time and programs to help build local resilience and reduce carbon dependency. For more information, visit transitionfidalgo.org.
