UniverCity Connections celebration Oct. 29

October 26, 2009

UniverCity Connections is focused on the connection between Colorado State University, downtown Fort Collins, and the Poudre River, striving to bring these community assets together in harmony with our natural environment.

UniverCity Connections Celebration
Thursday, Oct. 29 - 4 p.m.
Lincoln Center
417 W. Magnolia Street

UniverCity Connections, an initiative of the Community Foundation of Northern Colorado in partnership with Colorado State University, is focused on convening community and catalyzing opportunities for positive change with a focus on three of Fort Collins’ community assets:

  • Colorado State University
  • Downtown
  • Poudre River

"Getting there is as much fun as being there"

UniverCity Connections is gaining national exposure as it leads transformational change in Fort Collins.

Most notable is its progress with FortZED, the effort to turn the UniverCity area- CSU, Old Town, and the downtown river corridor- into a Zero Energy District, creating as much thermal and electrical energy as it uses. 

Interested volunteers encouraged to attend celebration Oct. 29

UniverCity volunteers - past and present - and those interested in volunteering, are invited to attend the next UniverCity Connections event at the Lincoln Center. The event is intended to celebrate UniverCity Connections' 3rd anniversary -- the incredible achievements of the dedicated volunteers, and to re-ignite the passion and energy that brought them together in the first place by launching the new initiative.

Ideas, vision, willingness to collaborate

New volunteers are needed to share their ideas, vision, and a willingness to collaborate and be a catalyst for positive change in the community. 

For more information on the event, UniverCity Connection's Doug Johnson can be reached at (970) 488-1985.
