Webinar Series: Why is sustainable community development necessary?

Online Webinar:September 09, 2022 12:00 PM – September 09, 2022 1:00 PM, Timezone: PST

Never has sustainable community development been more important for human survival, never mind thriving. Listen in to the professors leading the revised launch of RRU’s Graduate Certificate in Sustainable Community Development, discussing approaches toward reconciling ecological, social, and economic imperatives at the local level. We will discuss the Graduate Certificate’s emphasis on integrated planning processes and decision-making, which involves using systems thinking to recognize the relationships and interconnectedness between different sustainability challenges, strategies, and objectives. We will also discuss and explore tools and approaches for conducting integrated and participatory planning processes.

On September 9th, please join Ann Dale, Rob Newell, and Hilary Leighton on this webinar to explore the topic and be part of the conversation. Bring your questions and comments!
