SUSTAINABILITY COMMITTEE


Committee Chair:

Vinny Aliperti, Sarah Meyer, Jacob Fox, Councilmember Mark Palmieri, Supervisor Mark Venuti, Darrin McGee

The Geneva Town Sustainability Committee meets every other month, at 7pm, on the first Thursday of the month. The Committee will meet in person at Town Hall, with Zoom connection always available. 


According to the United Nations World Commission on Environment and Development, sustainable development is "meeting the needs of the current generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."

The Center for Sustainable Communities says that sustainability "consider[s] the whole instead of the specific. Sustainability emphasizes relationships rather than pieces in isolation."

"The Story of Stuff" author Annie Leonard says "sustainability must include equity and justice."

This was a virtual presentation to learn more about Soil Health Incentive programs, otherwise known as Payment for Ecosystem Services. These programs pay farmers to use agricultural practices that sequester carbon and other ecosystem services that grow healthy soils and keep nutrients on their land.
