WHO Anyone seeking to initiate or accelerate sustainable practices and/or raise eco-awareness within a circle of influence
WHAT How to Be an Agent of Change in Your Circle of Influence
* This six-session interactive course covers the theory, practice, and tools needed to work for change within a circle of influence (such as a school, neighborhood, place of worship or workplace).
* Each participant will develop a project in consultation with other members in the class and take steps of early implementation.
* The scope of initiatives varies greatly from, for example, upgrading recycling efforts at work to transforming a local school into an ecology center. In other words, the framework works at almost any scale.
