LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  commending  the  Omega  Center  for Sustainable
Living upon the occasion of hosting its "Where We Go From Here"  Confer-
ence

WHEREAS,  It is the sense of this Legislative Body to recognize that the
quality and character of life in the communities across New  York  State
are reflective of the concerned and dedicated efforts of those organiza-
tions  and individuals who would devote themselves to the welfare of the
community and its citizenry; and
  WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its  long-
standing  traditions,  this  Legislative Body is justly proud to commend
the Omega Center for Sustainable Living upon the occasion of hosting its
"Where We Go From Here" Conference on October 4-6, 2013; and
  WHEREAS, The Omega Center for Sustainable Living  (OCSL)  demonstrates
and teaches what is possible through regenerative design; its award-win-
ning  building,  Eco  Machine  and innovative educational programs offer
visitors and students a path toward a sustainable, just, resilient,  and
regenerative future where people and nature work side-by-side to build a
better life for all; and
  WHEREAS,  The  Omega  Center for Sustainable Living was founded on the
holistic worldview that the well-being of each of us is deeply connected
to the well-being of all living  things;  since  1977,  it  has  offered
diverse  and  innovative  educational  experiences that inspire an inte-
grated approach to personal and social change; it is a nonprofit  organ-
ization that continues to be at the forefront of human development; and
  WHEREAS,  Each  year,  more  than  23,000  people attend workshops and
educational programs delivered by hundreds of teachers,  artists,  heal-
ers, and thinkers on the leading edge of their disciplines; with special
attention  to  the Omega Center for Sustainable Living's key initiatives
in sustainability, women's leadership, veterans care,  and  service,  it
brings  awareness  to issues that must be addressed in order for society
to heal and flourish; and
  WHEREAS, The  Omega  Center  for  Sustainable  Living's  distinguished
record merits the recognition and respectful tribute of this Legislative
Body; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this  Legislative  Body pause in its deliberations to
commend the Omega Center for Sustainable Living  upon  the  occasion  of
hosting its "Where We Go From Here" Conference; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to the Omega Center for Sustainable Living.
