A message from the Executive Director Dear Friends, What a year it has been. World Accord took on its biggest ever public engagement event - our Sustainability Tour. We contacted many organizations and business in in the Kitchener Waterloo area about having them involved. They would go on a list and map and then during the "Tour" people would take the map and their Passport to Sustainability and collect stamps from the places they visited. World Accord coordinated it all and was involved in radio and TV interviews and talks at public events. The Passports were turned in at the World Accord office and put into a draw to win either a construction expedition to build a school in Honduras or have dinner with David Suzuki. That was the other part of the event. We arranged for David Suzuki to speak at a dinner for 100 people at a local restaurant that is working towards sustainability using locally grown food purchased directly from local farmers and producers (though they admit to having problems sourcing locally grown coffee and chocolate). It was a busy time and one may ask "So what?" Continued on pg. 2
Programming Highlights Continued from pg. 1
Well World Accord met many new people and forged new partnerships with local businesses and we introduced to them all the wonderful work and successes of our partner organizations - the reason we exist as an organization. The years ahead will determine how well we did. When we go to our local community for help for new events or just to ask them to sponsor or donate so we can do more for the people we are trying to help - then we will see. In the meantime you can "see" the amazing amount we were able to accomplish in one year by checking out the Video Annual Report at http:// worldaccord.org/about/annualreports/ This video was conceived and filmed by volunteers and also edited and produced by more volunteers. We hope you like it. We had an amazing year and look forward to cultivating communities that thrive in 2013. Thank you for helping us make it so.
