Register today for Sustainability Summer School: How Schools and Municipalities Can Partner for Sustainability. This interesting event will take place on Tuesday, June 25, 2019, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the library and art room of Cheltenham Elementary School, 7853 Front Street, Cheltenham. An organization’s decisions affect not only its operations but the community around it. Making sustainable decisions can help a municipality, school, or any organization be more efficient, act responsibly today, and protect its future. This workshop will help municipalities, schools, and other organizations plan for a sustainable future by highlighting ways to form productive partnerships. A sustainable future manages issues, such as energy strategy, resiliency, environmental protection, local economic development, and health, in a responsible manner.
The workshop will feature a panel of expert speakers from a broad spectrum of organizations who will share their experiences, the challenges they faced, and how they were able to overcome on their way to better operations. The speakers will discuss a variety of topics including energy management strategies and tools, recycling, sustainable procurement, stormwater management design and maintenance, and how to more sustainably design play spaces.
This event is being provided as part of Planning Smarter Montco 2019, a Montgomery County initiative offering planning education and outreach, and corresponds to the Sustainable Places theme contained in Montco 2040: A Shared Vision, Montgomery County’s comprehensive plan.
