“Who Are We?” A New Video About Marin’s Future

Are you frustrated by the negativity of the debate on planning and Marin’s future? Here’s a new video that asks the positive question “What do you want for Marin’s future?” and seeks answers in the vision of our youth. Former County Supervisor Susan Adams and her staff  asked young people — high schoolers … college students … future leaders of their generation–to talk with them about their experiences growing up and living here, what’s important to them, what they love about Marin, and what they see ahead.

Take a look, and if you think it has value, pass along a link to it to your friends via e-mail or your social media pages.

Who Are We? was directed by Marin County District 1 Supervisor Susan Adams and Staff Kiki La Porta and Susannah Clark. It was produced at the Community Media Center of Marin by Alejandro Palacios, Scott Calhoun, and Michael Eisenmenger.

Programming from Marin TV, produced at the Community Media Center of Marin. Visit us at: and support community media.

Video from “Plan Bay Area” Forum



 On May 9, 2013 Sustainable Marin, along with Sustainable San Rafael, The Marin Environmental Housing Collaborative, The League of Women Voters, The Marin Conservation League and Dominican University sponsored our second forum on the topic of planning the future of our communities in the era of climate change. “Planning the Future We Want (part 2)” drew an energized and attentive crowd of about 200 turned out at Dominican’s Angelico Hall. Click here for pictures from the event (video below.)

This time a panel of experts drilled down into the specific implications of  Plan Bay Area: How it fits into the larger picture of the states efforts to reduce GHG emissions and fight climate change . . . How it continues a long history of enlightened local planning to protect Marin’s unique assets . . .Whether or not it threatens local communities’ ability to control environmental impacts and preserve their quality of life. Watch video of the complete event below:

This was the continuation of a discussion of the shape of Marin’s future that started last September 19, 2012 in a full-house forum at the San Rafael Community Center. (Click here to see video of that earlier event.)
