As Dick and Jeanne note, the recent presidential election calls us to advance sustainability and ecological awareness through heightened citizen action in our local communities. During the Agent of Change training, each participant will develop a vision and plan for how to participate in the Portland-area citizen response.
As one Agent of Change training participant said, “A course such as this is absolutely needed in our community. In measurable and immeasurable, small and large, ways students’ efforts have mitigated damage to the planet by changing consciousness and behavior. Perhaps the greatest contribution of the course is instilling the belief that everyone is a leader who can influence changes that promote sustainability.”
Participants in this training will be given tools and strategies to develop a project, with input from others in your group. After the training, participants may join the Agent of Change Network, which plans regular gatherings for alumni to provide ongoing inspiration and support.
There is no charge for the training, but advance registration is required. To reserve your space, contact Jeanne Roy at 503-227-2315 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also read more about the training here.
