Anne-Brigitte Sirois shares a laugh with Sala facilitators Carl, John, & Tom
All life and human achievement is in reciprocal relation to our natural and social environments – born from its environment, yet impacts and re-forms that same environment. We share a responsibility to ensure that our relationship with our environs is concerted and progressive to best meet the needs of the present without compromising our future. To be sustainable is then to engage and form our environment so as to leave it continually better off for the sake of continually better lives and continually superior human achievements.

After many months of conversation and consideration, facilitators John, Carl, and Tom are pleased to announce the launch of the Sala website! The launch comes in anticipation of, and preparation for, the organization’s first gathering to be held later this month. In the development of the website, the design was left intentionally minimal – allowing for both a flexible navigation structure and an aesthetic driven by user contributed content. This notion is reflective of the Sala mission – here to promote idea and information exchange, and to facilitate interaction. We look forward to ongoing modifications and restructurings of the website as we develop the online Sala community. We encourage visitors to submit content – be it links to relevant articles of interest, photographs, artwork, paintings, writings, studies, etc., as we continue our progress. Please email submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
salanyc.org is currently under construction – check back for more updates soon!
