From James Posynick, KCDCS Chair
"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much." – Helen Keller
We are fortunate to have the support of our ‘partners’ whose names appear on the bottom footer of our website
. But the support of local businesses is also crucial to our success. Local, individual interest and input into our project has increased. We would like to see a similar response from local and regional businesses. We need their support and input, too. After all, they stand to benefit from the development of a new Discovery Centre.
Now some people think that business interests and environmental interests are polar opposites, that their primary objectives are so disparate – one to earn money and the other to protect and preserve the environment – that they cannot possibly work together, much less collaborate to serve the broader public interest.
Well that is simply not true of every kind of business – environmental organization relationship! The people who own and operate businesses are human beings, often with families and children. They read the news. They know the importance of education in the plan to tackle the impacts of climate change!
