Sustainability Stewards Workshop

February 17, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Sustainability Stewards Workshop

Connecting Artist and Planners

Engage Communities
Communicate Vision
Create Places that Inspire


As we aim to create great communities, spaces that inspire and processes that engage is often a critical component. This is where Art and Planning overlap. We hope you will join us for this very exciting dialogue and learning experience. Also, please share with others in related sectors. Think about the opportunities in Public Works, our Schools, Transportation, Community groups and non-profits, and of course, members of the art community. If you do forward – please cc me so that I may follow up with event announcements.  Learn more about the Sustainability Stewards of Broward program at www.broward.org/GoGreen.
