2023 Community Conversations Series

Community Conversations are back for 2023!

Last year, the Sustainable Endowments Institute in partnership with Second Nature, announced the 2022 Community Conversations Series.  This monthly peer-to-peer video conference provides an opportunity for sustainability and facilities professionals at higher education institutions, municipal/county/state governments, healthcare institutions, and K-12 schools to make new connections and fosters the sharing of best practices.

How It Works:
 – The topic for each monthly conversation is determined ahead of time based on voting and community interest. 
 – New for 2023, an institution representative or expert will share a brief overview of something exemplary they are doing on the topic to kick off the conversation.
 – Each monthly conversation has a limited number of attendees to encourage all participants to actively engage in the conversation.  
 – Once each conversation is over, the recording and call notes will be available (bookmark this page!), whether or not you were able to join the actual call.  

Higher Education Institutions, Municipal/County/State Governments, Healthcare Institutions, and/or K-12 Schools:
