On Wednesday, March 31 a Town Hall meeting will be conducted by Newt Gingrich at the Vinoy Hotel in downtown St. Pete.  During this meeting, he will be touting economic development at the expense of our coastal economy.

Hands Across the Sand plans to demonstrate to show their commitment to protect our coasts and our economy against offshore drilling, and promote clean energy and clean energy jobs.

The doors for the Town Hall Meeting open at 6pm Wednesday, March 31.  Hands Across the Sand volunteers will meet by 5:30 along 5th Ave North.  They will be wearing black to signify an oil slick.

who we are:

Early in 2008, St. Petersburg College recognized its responsibility to model to our students, employees and community ways to minimize global warming emissions and provide the knowledge to our graduates to help achieve a more environmentally friendly future. Because of this, the College made sustainability (defined as meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs) a top priority. As a result, the Office for Sustainability was established.

what we do:

Working alongside internal and external partners, the Office for Sustainability focuses on the following areas of environmental stewardship: educational programs and corporate training, energy and natural resource conservation, green buildings and facilities, carbon emissions, recycling and student activities.
