  1. Quite a few people have asked for guidelines for environment friendly management of the centres We have our policy, but this could be some clear and easy tips with pictures suitable for the worldwide BK community. It could be online or maybe even a booklet. Anyone out there who would like to take it on? A small group would be excellent.
  2. We are having a short Environment presentation with the RC's in March, anything you want to be addressed?
