The Sustainability Journey with The Natural Step: Next Stop Toronto

Submitted by Wasseem Emam on November 29, 2009 - 6:12 pm

I was fortunate enough to share in the learning experience provided by The Natural Step in their 'Sustainability for Leaders Level 1 Training Course' held in Toronto on November 25 & 26. Over the two days, 15 or so participants were introduced to the TNS Sustainability Framework and were given the opportunity to apply it in practical ways to their work. This largely participant-led, hands-on workshop featured an eclectic group of attendees from the Toronto area, with representation from non-governmental organizations and community groups to businesses, government and universities.

Women in Leadership Green Works Conference- Lessons Learned

On November 16, my colleague, Director of Communications Anouk Bertner, and I attended the Women in Leadership Green Works Conference held at the Crowne Plaza in Ottawa. This was an exciting opportunity for us to engage with other local women from various environmental sectors, government, non-government, private sector, corporation, and academia, in conversations relating to our field, exhibit information on The Natural Step, and for Anouk to provide insight on a panel of green professionals. 

Sustainability initiatives take off at Edmonton Airports!

On November 4th and 5th I, along with my colleague Pong Leung, had the pleasure of delivering a 1.5-day workshop with 20 staff from Edmonton Airports. After a few months of work on high level strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats and research into best practices of leaders in sustainability in the airport industry, this workshop was the transition towards the creation of a ‘sustainability road map for Edmonton Airports’ ongoing sustainability initiative.
