Sustainability Real Talk—GreenStep Cities Workshop & Webinar Dates for 2018-2019



Registration:
Registration for all GSC workshops is now open!

You want to see what cities are *actually* doing on sustainability topics, learn more about resources to make your life easier, and generally feel less like an island and more like the connected, resiliency rockstar you know you can be. We get it.

The free GreenStep Cities Workshop and Webinar Series is here for you, and the 2018-2019 dates have been announced (see below). Your city does not have to be in the GreenStep Cities program for you to participate.

What you can expect:
  • Relevant topics like road design, using data, partnering with schools, and more.
  • Real talk about sustainability projects straight from the city staffers doing the work.
  • Inspiration and info about resources from other levels of gov, nonprofits, and the private sector you can use.
  • Connections with other city officials in the room ready to share their own experience.
This season the workshops will be held the first Wednesday of each month from 9-11 a.m., with the exception of January (second Wednesday). Attend in person at the League of Minnesota Cities in St. Paul—free parking, transit accessible, snacks, friendly faces—or tune in online from literally anywhere with a connection. May's workshop is on the road in Red Wing!
