Join us Thursday, June 10 for a Sustainability Awareness workshop. This workshop, led by Matt Earnest, executive director of workforce development at Bridgemont Community and Technical College, will focus on the economic, social, and environmental impacts of the human species on the planet and the “Nine Opportunities for Sustainability” as potential solutions to those impacts.  The Nine Opportunities for Sustainability (9 OPPS) are:

  • OPP 1: Eliminate Waste—of all kinds
  • OPP 2: Go Non-toxic—supply chain, our process, emissions and products
  • OPP 3: Fight Global Weirding—reduce our carbon footprint
  • OPP 4: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Redesign—mimic nature
  • OPP 5: Make Transportation Efficient—move less stuff over shorter distances
  • OPP 6: Get Healthy—practice personal sustainability
  • OPP 7: Add Value in Our Community—give something back, it’s a two-way street
  • OPP 8: Engage Others—spread the word and listen
  • OPP 9: Challenge the Future—rethink how we create value  

Cost to attend is $25 for current Alliance members, $45 for future Alliance member.  Refreshments will be provided. For more information please contact Lesley Hager at LHager@CharlestonAreaAlliance.org

We are unable to invoice for groups with fewer than 10 or issue refunds for cancellations received less than 48 hours prior to the event. Thank you.
