Creating a sustainable community by "Growing Greener Generations"

Early-bird registration is now open for Sarasota County's 14th Annual Sustainable Communities Workshop on Nov. 14, a day-long event to showcase strategies for healthy, resilient, thriving communities.

Under the "Growing Greener Generations" theme, the workshop will draw together residents of all ages, business owners and employees, non-profit leaders, and government officials to learn about environmental, economic and social aspects of sustainability. Multi-generational panelists will discuss the latest sustainability strategies, resources and best practices, and opportunities for involvement locally.

"While every generation has a unique perspective on what we should focus on, all of us are facing the same growing concerns," said Sara Kane, sustainability program coordinator with the county's UF/IFAS Extension and Sustainability Department. "This year's workshop will feature multi-generational panels speaking to what they are doing, and what we as a community can do to develop a more sustainable future."
