Sustainability Summit Focuses on Partnerships




The 2018 Dallas County Community College District (DCCCD) Sustainability Summit will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., November 9, with a theme of partnerships that cement relationships and cooperative efforts to reach sustainability goals in schools, businesses and communities. The keynote speakers Marianella Franklin, chief sustainability officer for the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley, and Kevin Wilhelm, CEO of Sustainable Business Consulting.

“As DCCCD moves forward with its goals for sustainability inspired by 17 guidelines suggested by the United Nations, we want to focus on goal number 17, partnerships,” says Georgeann Moss, district executive director of sustainability and outreach initiatives. “One person can’t do it all, but one person or one organization can pick one sustainability project or goal and make it their call to action.”

Admission is free. Location: Richland College, 12800 Abrams Rd., Dallas. To register, visit dcccd.edu/SustainabilitySummit by Nov. 5.
