Welcome

Fundamentals of sustainability: A free, one-day, interactive workshop, with thought leader Jaimie Cloud

Join us for breakfast and lunch on Wednesday, June 1, 2016, for a Professional Development Day exploring:

  • What is sustainability?
  • Do we have a shared understanding of sustainability, and why is that important?
  • To create a sustainable society, what needs to change and what can be preserved?
  • What unique role do we each play in making the shift towards sustainability at home and at work?
  • How can we contribute individually and collectively to sustainable community development?

This workshop will address these questions and more, with a focus on communicating, learning about, and collaborating towards a sustainable future.
The continental breakfast and lunch will feature a menu of locally sourced foods!
