Sustainable Homes – Sustainable Communities

In his long career in television, Steve has done building and renovation projects all over the United States and the world, and has shot documentary films on topics as diverse as traditional Micronesian navigation, moon rockets and WWII in the Aleutian Islands. In this fast paced, richly illustrated (he takes his own photographs) 45 minute talk, Steve investigates the core DNA of sustainability, from a simple explanation of green building to outlining the role of Habitat for Humanity in helping to create a sustainable planet through its mission of “building a world in which everyone has a decent place to live.”

If you’re only thinking “This Old House” when it comes to Steve Thomas, think again! The synergy of Steve’s eclectic experiences around the world will energize and inspire folks in your organization to make a difference wherever they can. Most importantly Steve Thomas made us THINK; think about being more deliberative in creating shelter for families, a sense of place in our community and how every local decision can have an effect on sustaining the planet. Not enough? Try easy to work with, sincere, timely, generous, organized, an approachable crowd pleaser.

On behalf of Youth United and Greater Albuquerque Habitat for Humanity, I want to thank you for taking the time to come to Albuquerque and give the opening talk for our Music 4 Humanity Concert. Our event was a big success – we raised over $8,000 bringing our total funds raised this year to over $10,000. We will receive the $10,000 matching grant from State Farm and look forward to breaking ground on the State Farm/Youth United house on June 2nd.

We received so many compliments on our whole program, and particularly on your talk. Thank-you for coming early and meeting some of our local Habitat supporters as well, and I hope you had a good trip the next day. You were so kind to give us your time with the pressing demands of your travel schedule.

We hope to see you again in the near future, and welcome you to attend our groundbreaking/wall raising ceremony on June 2nd!

I want to thank you for your personal involvement in the National Healthy Homes Conference. Your keynote was inspiring – and entertaining – and greatly appreciated by all. We know that the mission to create healthy housing for American families cannot be achieved without the efforts of many. Having you at the Conference is a testament to that fact, and serves as a reminder that such highly respected individuals as you share our concerns. Together we can continue to reduce health hazards in housing for children and our most vulnerable.

I appreciate all you did for us at the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Please share my gratitude with Evy for helping us get you to the conference. I look forward to future collaboration with you in this important endeavor.
