Event description
EMERGE Leadership: An In-depth Workshop for Equitable Sustainability Leadership

About this Event

The International Living Future Institute (ILFI), NAACP, and the Georgia Institute of Technology are partnering together on this one-of-a kind workshop to introduce sustainability practitioners to some tools, skills, and frameworks that will help them step up as sustainability leaders centering equity as a foundation of their work.

EMERGE Leadership training from ILFI has helped practitioners of sustainability from around the country launch policy initiatives and commercial enterprises, navigate professional career transitions, initiate transformative community projects, and more.

ILFI will be joined by two guests for this workshop, who will share some of their most successful tools:

The NAACP Environment and Climate Justice program provides many toolkits, resources, and training to help community organizers and leaders build equitable movements for environmental justice throughout the country.

Georgia Tech’s Center for Serve-Learn-Sustain coordinates partnerships among faculty, students, and community leaders to advance sustainable development across the Atlanta region and beyond, with a special focus on social sustainability and equity. The Center also leads the Equity Petal work for Georgia Tech’s new Living Building, the Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design.

This workshop will be an interactive session that builds on the EMERGE Leadership framework, using the tools and lessons learned from NAACP and Serve-Learn-Sustain to ensure that participants have the awareness and tools necessary to make equity a focus of their sustainability leadership. It will open with an equity-focused tour of the Kendeda Building.

**NOTE - We are committed to making this event accessible to all, and a limited number of free passes are available. Please reach out to ambassador@living-future.org if ticket pricing is a barrier to your participation.
