GreeningUSA and the Syracuse Center of Excellence (SyracuseCoE) are planting the seeds for public and private sector professionals to share their expertise on green community initiatives, and get recognized for their efforts.
This is the fifth session of the Green Bag Lunch Series and will focus on the topic of Water & Related Infrastructure. If you are involved in any area of municipal water systems/infrastructure, wastewater treatment, comunity planning or water quality/testing for the public or private sectors, or if you play a role in a municipality's sustainability initiatives, please join us on March 8 to share your expertise and become part of this groundbreaking initiative!
Want to share your expertise with Green Bag Lunch attendees? We are seeking industry experts on various community sustainability topics to serve as guest panelists at every monthly session. Contact Peter Arsenault at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All Green Bag Lunches are free and open to the public. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own lunches. Complimentary hot and cold beverages will be available. Space is limited, and preferential seating will be given to GreeningUSA members and SyracuseCoE partners/affiliates.
The Green Bag Lunch Series is designed to bring experts and professionals alike together in order to help compile a comprehensive best practices manual on community sustainability for municipalities. Each monthly Green Bag Lunch topic will mirror a category in GreeningUSA's 12 Traits of Sustainable Communities Rating System, and be explored by attendees who work in related industries.
