It's not easy being Green, so I am going back to School.

I want to be more like Kermit so I will be going back to school so Dunwoody can implement Green and Sustainable strategies.
Green Communities Training Class
offered by the Atlanta Regional Commission
Tuesday December 9th @ the Chamblee Civic Center

Local governments around the country and the Atlanta region are advancing bold visions for making their cities and counties more environmentally sustainable.

Policy makers are developing new resources and imposing new requirements that raise the bar for service delivery – and result in corresponding reductions in operating costs. Local governments, developers, builders, residents and consumers alike are responding to emerging opportunities to green communities that implement a holistic approach which provides integrated solutions to housing, health and environmental challenges.

The objectives of this workshop are to:
  • Facilitate information sharing on why and how communities are increasingly going green
  • Promote discussion on research, approaches, strategies, and operational issues related to green practices.
Participants will learn about:
  • Local and national case studies;
  • Internal and external community greening practices;
  • Green infrastructure and water management policies and practices; and
  • Sustainable certifications and regional and national programs.
