     Detroit May 2-5 with local kick-off events in Detroit on May 1st.  It 
     will be a major opportunity to exchange information, learn what others 
     are doing and take home ideas to make our communities, businesses and 
     organizations more sustainable. [See www.sustainableamerica.org for
