Sustainability 101 Workshop – 2018

February 17, 2018 @ 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

$20 – $25

Sustainability 101 Workshop

Science Class for Adults

Are you curious about what “sustainability really means”?  Or do you know what it means personally, but are you wondering what scientists have to say about it?  Have you wondered how it is relevant to a place like Boxerwood, or a town like Lexington?  Are you confounded by questions like, “paper vs plastic?”, “wild caught vs farm-raised”, or “solar vs geothermal vs natural gas”?  

Boxerwood is hosting a workshop Saturday afternoon, February 17th 2018, 2-5 pm, to explore some of these questions.  Through simulations and games, this Science Class for Adults will lay the foundation for understanding a clear, science-based framework for sustainability.  Participants will learn about The Natural StepTM, an internationally recognized and open source set of principles that can guide our stewardship of our homes, our businesses, our schools, our towns, and indeed, our world.

Whether you are a business manager wanting to jumpstart your sustainability efforts, or a teacher looking for techniques to introduce students to sustainability, or simply someone who would like to make sense of the growing phenomenon called sustainability, this workshop offers an engaging, interactive way to get you started.

The workshop cost is $25 for non-members and $20 for members.  You may e-mail Catrien (Sustainability Manager) at catrien@boxerwood.org with questions.  Space is limited so register soon!
