KINGSTON, N.Y. — “Building a People Centered Economy: the Ulster 2040 Vision” will be presented at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ulster County’s virtual Annual Meeting on Tuesday, December 7 at 7 PM.
Join us to hear more from the Ulster 2040 Working Group’s facilitator, Tim Weideman, Director of the Ulster County Department of Economic Development. Learn what CCE did in 2021 and how we are planning for a future that is more resilient, equitable and locally independent.
How do we future proof our community? How do we prepare for the challenges we face including climate change, labor, a housing crisis, and food insecurity, as well as the unforeseen hurdles like a global pandemic?
Ulster County convened a group to explore some of these questions. The 2040 Panel brought together a diverse group of thinkers – they created a vision of a people centered economy focused on ag, clean energy, makers, and health.
This meeting is free and open to the public. RSVP on the event webpage at ulster.cce.cornell.edu/
