Continuing Education: Sustainable Cities Symposium

Posted by Ron Wolford -

The Sustainable Cities Symposium serves to educate Illinois municipal leaders on how to make communities more sustainable by implementing green practices and programs.

Presentations and discussions will cover topics such as renewable energy and energy efficiency, alternative transportation, storm water management, land use planning, pollution prevention, green building and recycling. The symposium will highlight environmental best practices employed by Illinois municipalities and counties, and provide lessons that you can take back and apply to your own community. This event is hosted by the Illinois Green Governments Coordination Council, the Village of Lisle, and Benedictine University.
