Stakeholders for a Safe Green Village (aka Stakeholders SGV) is a community-based organization with the purpose to raise grassroots participation!
We’re All Stakeholders — aiming at a basis of principles that organizes ad hoc projects; discussions and assessments; plus community orientations;
Raising the Stakes — empowering and informing each and every participatory member to raise, engage and develop membership from at large, so to establish forum;
Growing the Grassroots — raising a natural and spontaneous involvement within the general community with a bootstrapping “can do” worldview;
Democratizing Participation — democratizing the forum and process in order that participation is fully raised and optimized (remaining fair, balanced and transparent).
Stakeholders for a Safe Green Village speaks for six main areas of advocacy and application. These areas are shared from this page (below) and within this website. In some ways, many of such areas cross over with one another in terms of interest and point of view, as well as into various other aspects, such as programs, projects, and events. We invite you to start in any one area of interest and become an active —participatory — stakeholder with the grassroots of our community.
StakeholdersSGV.org is in motion!
We change with the times, and the issues!
Please note that this website is continuously evolving and subject to changes as we take on new initiatives, programs, and events. Check in regularly here, as well as on our Facebook and Twitter Pages for regular updates. Examples of recent events and programs can be seen in the below.
