The second annual Dallas County Community College District Sustainability Summit, April 5, at Eastfield College, will address how individuals, the local business community and educational institutions will benefit from beginning their own journey toward sustainability and adopting the concept of the triple bottom line concept (actions must be good for people, the planet and everyone’s wallet).

He is actively involved with various groups, including League of Conservation Voters, Republicans for Environmental Protection, the Nature Conservancy of Texas, Texas Business for Clean Air and Texas Land Conservancy, and supports myriad conservation and environmental efforts, including Earth Day Dallas

Summit participants can choose from five tracks, including Zero Waste, Local Report Card, Sustainable Careers, Sustainable Schools and Colleges and Sustainable Homes. Proceeds of the conference will benefit EDD, Inc., a Texas nonprofit organization.
