OUT for Sustainability has decided to postpone Fab Planet Summit 2018 from this Spring to later in the year, or early next year, depending on timing of sufficient volunteer support.
This decision to delay is due to extremely limited availability by the organizing committee, and our desire to sustain the quality of our programming, especially for this cornerstone gathering of great minds and fabulous doers in LGBTQ sustainability action.
OUT4S is run completely by volunteers, all of whom have more than full-time jobs as well. We may look like a fully staffed organization, as we often hear, but the quality of our work is reliant on the passion and time of people who are also professionally creating a more fabulous planet… as advocates, innovators, and leaders in public, private, and nonprofit sectors. This isn’t an excuse for inaction on our parts, just a factor in our ability to operate.
Coming out for sustainability is a powerful act. In the time between now and the next Fab Planet, what can YOU do to come out for your values and act on them?
We invite you to facilitate an Earth Gay in your area, to host a Salon on queer sustainability topic you care about, and even to step up and take a leadership role with OUT4S, on the planning committee for Fab Planet, or even to apply to the Board of Directors.
Thank you for your passion and time. For OUT4S, for Fab Planet, and for doing great work to make this planet fabulous for all!
