WEBINAR: Health and Equity in Action: A Case Study On How Atlanta-Based Colleges & Universities Are Benefiting Their Communities
December 18th, 2pm EST
Please join AASHE, the Center for Green Schools at USGBC and Second Nature in the third of three discussions in its 2013 joint series on December 18th at 2 PM ET. In this webcast on health and equity, panelists from Emory University and Spelman College will build on previously discussed topics of the integrated process and climate adaptation to consider the campus’ role in addressing human health issues locally. Using the city of Atlanta as a case study, the panel will look at how local colleges are meeting the needs of current students and community members as well as future generations through wellness programs, transportation initiatives, agricultural relationships and regional collaboratives, among other efforts. Speakers differing campus cultures will share their unique perspective on how their institutional story is unfolding to meet their sustainability goals on campus and within the city.

Good Jobs Green Jobs Conference
February 10 - 11, 2014
This year’s Conference is focused on repairing the systems Americans rely on every day, whether getting us back and forth to work, supplying our power, keeping us safe from storms and floods, communicating with police and fire during emergencies, or ensuring the institutions where our children learn are safe and healthy. It's time to repair these systems today to create quality, family-sustaining jobs, to address the threat of climate change, and to ensure the health and safety of our workplaces and our communities.
Join thousands of business and community leaders, union members, and environmentalists at Good Jobs, Green Jobs 2014 and take up the call to Repair America.
Smart and Sustainable Campuses Conference
March 3 - 4, 2014
The sharing economy: no place is this more evident than on our campuses. Students are rethinking vehicle ownership, swapping clothes, trading books, and participating in MOOCs. In other words, finding ways to make their limited funds go further. Campuses must also find opportunities to conserve limited resources, make college more affordable, and make our communities more resilient to economic and environmental change. A sharing economy is leading to more sustainable consumption, operations, services, and lifestyles in our communities and on our campuses. Come share with us.
Smart and Sustainable 2014 (SSCC) provides the time and space for dialogue on experiences and challenges in an open and collaborative environment. We have moved beyond show-and-tell presentations towards skill building, rich discussions and deep dives into the challenges and solutions facing our institutions.
