Networking Lunch on Embedding Sustainability into the Culture of Municipal Government at FCM Conference (Ottawa, ON)

Feb 9 2012 - 11:30am
Feb 9 2012 - 12:30pm

Join The Natural Step Canada for a networking lunch in Ottawa to discuss how municipal governments across the country are setting a positive example and leading their communities toward a sustainable future by embedding sustainability into their culture.

Title: Embedding Sustainability into the Culture of Municipal Government

Description: A growing number of municipal governments across the country are aiming to become beacons of sustainability in their communities, but many are struggling to lead by example. Municipal governments committed to sustainability now have a practical tool to help them integrate sustainability in their culture and make a deep shift toward sustainability in their organization. A new report called Embedding Sustainability into the Culture of Municipal Government, promises to help municipal change agents advance sustainability in their organizations and become role models for others in the community.

The report is the result of a comprehensive review of municipal sustainability practices from across Canada. Based on leading research, the guide provides practical guidance for municipal practitioners and organizations to support a culture of sustainability in municipal governments.
Come and learn how this report and our various tools are being used by municipal governments to help them plan and implement their corporate sustainability strategies. Some of the municipal governments who help to create this report will be on hand to share their experience with you.

Date: February 9, 2012, 12:00-1:00pm

Location: Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) 2012 Sustainable Communities Conference, Provinces Room, Westin Hotel, Ottawa, ON (map). There will be signs at the Trade Show entrance directing you to the Networking Lunch tables.

Host: John Purkis, Senior Sustainability Advisor, The Natural Step Canada
