The Impact

February 28, 2011 at 12:43 pm Leave a comment

The impact of the Center will be pervasive throughout the community on multiple levels.  The Center will:

  • give a visual and tangible face to sustainability in Northeast Florida
  • create an educational home that will be accessible to all interested members of the community, and
  • inspire people to visit downtown and reduce their ecological footprint and energy use through sustainable actions.

The Center is designed to touch all types of audiences through numerous forms of learning, outreach through strategic partnerships, and closing the information-to-action gap by connecting people to trusted resources, products, and services in the region to create and keep jobs here.

We plan to reach different audiences such as:

  • Schools and Girl/Boy Scouts through the mobile unit and interactive field trips to the Center where they are shown how to reduce their family’s energy and water consumption bo 10-20% through no or low-cost actions.  Students will also learn how to become lifelong stewards of the environment.
  • Commercial property owners through in-person and webinar classes on the Energy Star Portfolio and sharing the success stories of their owners.
  • Homeowners or renters through interactive displays of products, processes, and behavior so they can learn the right questions to ask when looking for an energy/water efficient appliance or information on how to do a green remodel (big or small).
  • Businesses through classes and direct consultation on how to build, behave, and procure, as well as market for differentiation as a green company.
