Green Drinks: Why should environmentalists support building more housing?

June 13 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

We know that healthy communities exist within the context of a healthy environment — and right now, both are threatened. There is a housing shortage across the country, with many hard-working families unable to find a place to live. There is also a climate crisis, with greenhouse gas emissions threatening the stability of all our planet’s ecosystems and biodiversity.

Join us to learn more about MountainTrue’s newest program, Neighbors for More Neighbors WNC, and about part of the solution to both these crises.

As the Housing & Transportation Director for MountainTrue and the program director for Neighbors for More Neighbors WNC, Susan Bean informs organizational policy priorities for housing and transportation projects across Western North Carolina. Susan earned her Masters in Public Administration from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, where she led wilderness expeditions as a graduate assistant for the university’s outdoor program. She is actively involved in the community serving as a member of the Planning & Zoning Commission for the City of Asheville and a facilitator for Building Bridges.


5:30 p.m.: Grab and drink and network with like-minded locals.

6:00 p.m.: Enjoy the presentation and learn something new!


Hendersonville Green Drinks is presented by Conserving Carolina, MountainTrue and Trailside Brewing Co. Come to Green Drinks to learn more about current environmental issues, have relevant discussions, and meet with like-minded people. This is a monthly event and everyone is welcome.
