The SCOPE 2016 Sustainability Road Show will continue its county tour next week with a stop at the North Port Library from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 23, the organization has announced.

The public is invited to attend the free interactive workshop, a news release says. The library is located at 13800 S. Tamiami Trail in North Port.

Drawing from SCOPE’s Community Report Card, participants will review data about multiple aspects of the community “through the lens of sustainability,” including the natural environment, the built environment, and social and economic conditions, the release adds. SCOPE staff will facilitate discussion about the status of local sustainability efforts, actions people are taking in the community and how participants may get involved, the release notes.

SCOPE is a community engagement organization based in Sarasota County whose mission is “to connect and inspire citizens to create a better community,” the release explains. To accomplish SCOPE’s mission, “SCOPE focuses on data-based decision-making for a strong, engaged and healthy community,” the release adds.

Registration is recommended but not required, the release says.

  1. Sustainability is a green claptrap term for measuring forward progress while marching in place. Why use it?
