> Grand will want our guaranteed numbers by Friday afternoon.

> The Challenge Paper
> We have just under a week to go to the Conservation Summit, so I'd  
> like to alert you to opportunities to review our background paper and  
> start thinking about opportunities, recommendations, and commitments  
> that can be brought forward at the Summit.
>  There is much to cover in the one day, and we have planned the agenda  
> to make sure all the participants have enough time to brainstorm  
> around ways to build a stronger conservation movement and to make sure  
> we can achieve results on the ground with respect to natural habitat,  
> energy conservation, waste reduction, urban design, community  
> organizing and much, much more.
>  To help you prepare for the summit, we are compiling a challenge  
> paper that gives an overview of NGO projects in each of the areas we  
> are covering at the summit, and (by next week) will indicate possible  
> opportunities for new projects and partnerships.
>  You can find sections of the Challenge Paper posted on the main page  
> of the Summit website www.greenontario.org/summit/
>  For those from the NGO side, please make sure I have included your  
> projects (I know there are many worthwhile projects I have missed) and  
> e-mail me a succinct paragraph and web link (following the style of  
> the report). I will paste them into the final version for the summit.
>  For those from the corporate or government side, I'd welcome you  
> suggestions on projects as well, but concentrate on potential  
> partnerships and areas of mutual interest. Building an effective  
> conservation movement in Ontario is going to need a cooperative  
> approach.
>  If you can, please send through comments ASAP so I can incorporate  
> them into the sections of the paper over the weekend and Monday. You  
> will all receive a hard copy of the paper at the Summit next Thursday.
>  I look forward to seeing you there,
>  Chris
