The GreenGov Council and Penn State’s Sustainability Institute are co-hosting our third monthly webinar series on various sustainability topics. All who are interested in expanding their knowledge of sustainability initiatives are invited to participate! Our goal is to make this series a successful venture to support the commonwealth’s progress toward sustainability goals set forth in the Governor’s Executive Order 2019-01.
The series is intended to give participants opportunities to hear from subject matter experts and receive updates on each topic to enrich their knowledge while engaging in group Q&A. This series will also be a useful tool for governments, agencies, students, and individuals to explore options and develop sustainability initiatives. The webinars will be hosted monthly and consist of a 30 minute presentation followed by a 15 minute question & answer session. All presentations will be held via Microsoft Teams webinars and participants should plan to connect utilizing their computers to view and engage. Pre-registration at event link is required.
