Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
During the Congressional City Conference held in Washington DC March 12 - 13, 2011 and sponsored by the National League of Cities, www.nlc.org , I'm hosting a workshop Eco-Chic: Changing America’s Landscape challenging attendees to create community green, sustainable urban/suburban landscapes. Based on research published in my book From Eco-weak to Eco-chic: landscape green, http://www.lulu.com/content/paperback-book/from-eco-weak-to-eco-chic-lan... , I explore individual, business and community accountability emphasizing eco leadership characteristics.

National League of Cities - The National League of Cities (NLC) is the oldest and largest national organization representing municipal governments throughout the United States. Its mission is to strengthen and promote cities as centers of opportunity, leadership, and governance. Working in partnership with the 49 state municipal leagues, NLC serves as a resource to and an advocate for the more than 19,000 cities, villages, and towns it represents. Eco-Chic: Changing America’s Landscape - The present-day challenge for community leaders is to create eco-healthy public spaces, adopt a “waste not, want not” commitment - become caretakers for the environmental community. Individually and collectively we face a critical decision: either implement green land use strategies and create eco-healthy spaces or continue practices that contribute to the decline of community eco-systems. During my session, I explore skills and techniques proven to move America's landscapes from eco-weak to eco-chic, creating a legacy of healthy community green spaces. To inspire others, during the month of March, I'm offering discounted eco book sales.
