The Common Agenda

Contributors

Nearly 100 leaders of public health, labor, environmental, community development, and agriculture organizations contributed to the Common Agenda, by providing guidance to the project, participating in issue-specific discussion groups, representing issue areas at one or two multi-day meetings, and commenting on draft documents. The Lowell Center for Sustainable Production designed, coordinated, and supported the process.
