NGO Sustainability Champions Workshop Series

Mar 22 2016 - 2:00pm to Mar 23 2016 - 11:00pm
Jun 22 2016 - 2:00pm to 11:00pm

Non-profit organizations create positive social, environmental and economic impacts for their communities. At the same time, they are expected to be role models whose own staff and operations “walk the talk” in terms of sustainability. This can be a challenge given limited time, support and funding

The Natural Step Canada and Edmonton Community Foundation are excited to offer the NGO Sustainability Champions Workshop Series to help NGO’s address this need with two key outcomes:

  • To build the capacity of staff to develop and deliver a sustainability action plan, based on the award-winning approached pioneered by The Natural Step.
  • To develop an action plan to improve sustainability performance.
