Help pioneer the new green frontier and take part in a dynamic grassroots program.

WHAT:  How to Be an Agent of Change in Your Circle of Influence
This six-session interactive course covers the theory, practice, and tools needed to work for change within a circle of influence (such as a school, neighborhood, place of worship or workplace).

Each participant will develop a project in consultation with other members in the class and take steps of early implementation. 

The scope of initiatives varies greatly from, for example, upgrading recycling efforts at work to transforming a local school into an ecology center.  In other words, the framework works at almost any scale.
