On Thursday, April 28 a panel made up of representatives from local schools will share what their schools and organizations are doing to incorporate sustainable and green practices.
The lunch-n-learn runs over the noon lunch hour, from 12:11 to 12:49 p.m. This month the event will be held City Hall, 107 N Nevada Ave, in the Academy Room, while election ballots occupy the standard meeting space. Attendees are encouraged to bring and enjoy their lunches during the presentation. Those who come have the opportunity to win a door prize tote bag made from recycled City banners.
Incorporating sustainable practices into the operation plans of education organizations is a growing best practice around the nation. The US Green Building Council Colorado Chapter has an active Green Schools Initiative and the Governor?s Energy Office provides grant assistance to school districts for Sustainability Management systems. The higher education institutions located in Colorado Springs also incorporate substantial sustainability efforts into their programs.
Each month, the City Green Team sponsors a lunch-n-learn topic on environmental issues. Questions? Contact City of Colorado Springs Sustainability Coordinator Carrie McCausland, 719-385-CSGN (2746) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
