The Environmental Stewardship Program with focus on Sustainability was launched in 2009 and during this time it has served many individuals and organizations. Participants come from a variety of professional backgrounds and represent a broad range of industries including government agencies, private businesses, and other sectors.
Since the early 1990’s, hundreds of private, public, and community-based sustainable development initiatives have blossomed across the globe. Executive Orders by the Governors of Oregon and Washington, and actions by local governments and an increasing number of private companies, have made sustainable development a common element of today’s regional public dialogue.
In most public and private organizations, the successful adoption of sustainability measures requires changes in both operations and culture. Each of these changes requires a systems perspective. Altering operations involves broadened awareness of how physical systems function as well as technical skills and knowledge in a variety of specialized fields.
These are the foundational themes of this seminar series. Each seminar will focus on specific, practical tools and methods of moving an organization toward sustainability.
