Valparaiso’s new citizen-led environmental task force held its first sustainability commission meeting on on Tuesday.July 5th. InVEST, the name the group chose for itself, was created to increase environmental education and encourage sustainability in the Valparaiso community.
The primary focuses of InVEST will be energy, water pollution, green space, over development and public health. Creating opportunities for education and awareness will be central to InVEST’s work. “Understanding the why of certain environmental actions is key because it helps people become more engaged,” Michael Mirochna, the group’s organizer, explained.
InVEST is apolitical and welcomes members of all ages and backgrounds. If you’re interested in becoming involved or want more information, please contact: email@example.com
