The Institute for Georgia Environmental Leadership held their 2014 Summit, New Ideas and Old Friends, at Cox Enterprises in Dunwoody last month. Each year some 30 Georgians are selected to attend monthly weekends at different parts of the state examining sustainability issues across Georgia's diverse geographic and economic spectrum.
Judy Adler from the Turner Foundation announced the creation of the Barbara Gallo Scholarship, created in honor of the late IGEL leader to strengthen IGEL's recruitment ability to include those who may not otherwise be able to afford it, and an interactive session looked at both sides of the Savannah Harbor deepening, with both the Georgia Ports Authority and Southern Environmental Law Center moderating – two divergent views to say the least. Cox's Steve Bradley, IGEL Summit Chair threw a great reception afterward in the lobby of its LEED certified building.
