Cool Choices is excited to offer our Sustainable Communities webinar series, funded by the Carolyn Foundation. This series of four webinars aims to increase the capacity of local leaders to engage and inspire climate action in their communities.
All of these webinars are FREE and open to anyone interested in learning more about inspiring a local culture where sustainable practices are the new normal.
The webinars will be especially relevant to city staff charged with leading sustainability efforts, elected officials working to deepen sustainability efforts locally, and citizens interested in jump starting sustainability in their community.
