Sustainability Street Institute;

Extraordinary General Meeting

Deductible Gift Recipient Status

Dear SSI Member,

The Sustainability Street Institute (SSI) is proud and delighted to announce that the Sustainability Street Approach (SSA) is celebrating a decade of passionate commitment to and education for eco-living culture building through community strengthening.  Since 2002, close to 500 local SSA Villages around Australia, and beyond, have both used the Approach, though more importantly, have helped to shape it.  Accordingly, this year also marks the release of the most exciting version of the SSA Manual to date, V4.1,  "The Shortcut To Sustainability Street; DIO"(NB: DIO = Do It Ourselves, all of us, together, not just DIY, yourself alone, but wif ya mates).    

The Shorty, as 'tis affectionately known, is the embodiment of the Institutes' core mission since 1988, which, as educators, is to "craft" the Approach to be independently doable.  A springboard for self actualisation, thus enabling self determination by local groups.   The SSI offers this latest manual as being truly "the guide beside … rather than the sage on stage".

So, the SSI, invites you to an Extraordinary General Meeting on Sunday 3rd of June @ Cafe Fianco, 85 High St (Cnr Barry) Westgarth, in order to ...

a) celebrate the Launch of The Shorty

b) hear about the “eBook version”, produced in iBookAuthor, for the iTunes availability around the world

b) consider a motion to enable the Institute to seek Deductible Gift Recipient status, or DGR as it is known.

DGR status would be most timely at this stage in the SSA journey.   With the The Shorty now "in the bag", the Institute is excited about our other original, cut through, educational, people driven, nature venerating and values clarifying projects … which have been on that ol' drawing board for quite a wee while or two … and which have equally deep and wide, if not greater potential to make a difference.   A big difference, the projects include ...
