EDUCATION AND ADVOCACY
WATER, OPEN SPACE, HEALTHY FORESTS, ENERGY & AIR
The Education and Advocacy Committee is tasked with identifying issues that would benefit from the support of Arizona Forward. The committee will secure key subject-matter experts to present on topics that impact our natural and built environment. To better address the interests of our members in both education and advocacy, we will operate on two levels. First, for regular monthly meetings, the committee will bring in speakers on environmental issues important to our State. Our intent is that speakers will make us aware of issues that would benefit from advocacy and support from Arizona Forward members like you. Second, the committee will decide whether to take positions, or take on projects based on the issues presented.
Stewarding Arizona's Environment Since 1969
Arizona Forward was founded as Valley Forward in 1969, one year before the first Earth Day.
We mobilize business leaders and policymakers to leverage their collective power to influence how we best grow our communities, stimulate our economy and enhance our environment.
Our diverse membership of large corporations and small businesses, along with municipal, county and state agencies, educational institutions, related nonprofits and concerned citizens help ensure: smart growth and development, efficient transportation, improved air quality, responsible water management, energy alternatives and meaningful education.
