We know that the ecosystem we live in is not sustainable without LOCAL action.
The Green Leaders Retreat will provide you with insights, skills, and connections for making a positive green impact in our world.
This retreat is for individual Green Leaders seeking to take the next step in creating positive impact at the community level in the DMV – creating actionable solutions that create more sustainable LOCAL communities.
You may be a leader in your job, community, or of one, seeking to shape a better future.
Won’t you step forward and be a part of creating solutions that matter for your local community?
Join us for an afternoon of inspiration and action with fellow Green Leaders on Friday, June 8 from 1-5 pm at Potomac Overlook Regional Park, Arlington, Va.
We’ll examine several of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in particular, #7 (Affordable Clean Energy), #8 (Decent Work); and #9 (Resilience). These three goals will be explored, in addition to the larger SDG framework, as one of several approaches to share existing knowledge and allow new ideas to emerge and be jointly developed. These goals can often seem out of the touch with our daily lives. How can we bring these actions to the local level? Can we begin to develop some local or personal SDGs?
