[ See – I’ve been kinda an outsider to and have hated facebook, linkedin, twitter, etc., and have used almost none of them to properly promote and participate as Collinwood Sun. We help promote our music artists but don’t do much promoting of the parent company. ]

But the Sun will be rising soon, with official pages on all the major services.

When Life Is Hard You Have To Change

Progress is being made at securing the new location for Collinwood Sun. In case you were wondering, you haven’t been invited down yet since our current office facilities are mobile and our production facilities are private. But work is being done to bring them together into one glorious location – a grand old-school gesture that could be the catalyst for many future projects. Stay tuned for information on this exciting new adventure.

We Have To Get Smarter, and We Have To Get Smarter Quickly

Sustainable Cleveland 2019 is an impressive 10-year project launched by Mayor Jackson to convert our expired manufacturing economy (and it’s associated population decrease) to a sustainable, progressive, aka ‘green’ economy.

Moving beyond speeches, concepts and meetings, the program features over 15 working groups covering all shades of what sustainability means in modern America. This is also a unique movement in that every type of person, from every walk of life, in every type of industry, has been involved in creating our new future.

The title of this post is a quote I loved from one of the keynote speakers. It comes from Gil Sperling of the Department of Energy. He outlined the Obama administration’s initiatives and brought a federal perspective to our challenge. It’s strange when federal politicians seem to truly understand the issue and come to the same conclusions. Exciting times as we rebuild and redesign our community.

Believe it or not there was a time when Cleveland Ohio was the fifth largest city in America. That time is long gone but the location remains, along with the infrastructure and the best laid plans. There is now the desire to rebuild or better yet redesign what a modern american city is capable of. Urban farming, local foods, energy efficiency, renewable power, complete streets, green space, clean water – these issues are being dissected and developed into a new economy. Cleveland is taking a lead for our own survivability, and with the number of people in attendance from Detroit, Columbus, Pittsburgh, and other midwestern cities I see that others are starting to take notice.

Don’t Just Save, Improve

Sustainability Cleveland 2019 is a hybrid tradeshow/workgroup/community meeting that the mayor’s office launched in 2009 to bring focus to economic, social, and environmental issues facing our region in the 21st century. People here are starting to accept the connections between the local economy, local foods, local green spaces, local education, and transportation styles, and we all understand the role innovation will play in reversing several decades of trends afflicting industrial midwest cities like our beautiful forest city on the north coast.

Collinwood Sun is fortunate to be attending this year, primarily to gauge the market for potential partners and/or customers for our exciting software plans. This is the first event we’ve attended put on by the City of Cleveland so we are excited. If you found this blog stop over and say hello!
