Description

On September 21st, 2017, Join Sustainable Hamilton Burlington and the Natural Step’s John Purkis to learn about how to turn those ideals into a vision and how to map a strategy to realize that vision. In “Creating Your Sustainability Vision and Strategy”, you will:

  • Gain a better understanding of sustainability and learn how to evaluate the relative sustainability of every-day product/service/process options
  • Come away with a framework and practical tools for developing a sustainability vision and plan for your own organization – and understand the importance of a vision and plan
  • Learn from real world case studies and hear best practices to take action
  • Have the chance to give input on learning goals before the event through a participant survey
  • Understand how the sustainability visioning and planning processes fits within Sustainable Hamilton Burlington’s Sustainable Business Initiative (SBI)

To maximize the your learning opportunities during the workshop, Mr. Purkis has provided a series of video clips that provide an overview of the key concepts of The Natural Step Framework. The videos were prepared by Sustainability Illustrated and may be found by clicking here. This advance exposure to the concepts will provide an important foundation for workshop participants. With the building blocks of a common language for sustainability, participants will get more out of the program.

In addition, when you register, you will be sent a link to a survey that will help Mr. Purkis shape the learning goals to take participants interest and needs into account - tell us what you need to know so we can try to include it in the presentation!
