Sustainable City Network presented this webinar series in July 2017, intended for any personnel who are responsible for developing sustainability plans and strategies for a community, business or institution.
The 6-hour online course, Creating a Sustainability Strategy for Your Organization, focuses on the implementation and strategic thinking that is required to implement a sustainability plan. Too often, we write a plan and have the greatest intentions of implementing all of the metrics only to have these ideas fall flat because of politics, organizational culture, or lack of support from the top. This course will teach you how to incorporate storytelling and systems thinking into a strategic plan that gets your plan implemented and enables you to move the needle further and faster to create a more sustainable community.
