Event Description

The Green Leaders Retreat will provide you with insights, skills, and connections for making a positive green impact in our world.
Join for an afternoon of inspiration and action with fellow Green Leaders on Friday, June 8 from 1-5 pm at Potomac Overlook Regional Park, Arlington, Va. This retreat is for individual leaders seeking to gain inspiration and connection with ourselves and others and further develop their leadership skills. You may be a leader in your job, community, or of one, seeking to shape a better future.
The retreat will examine how local leaders can translate larger global goals into action into their communities.
In developing our insights on what is needed in the world and how we – as individual and community leaders – can step forward to “Be the Change.” The retreat will examine several of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in particular, #7 (Affordable Clean Energy), #8 (Decent Work); and #9 (Resilience). These three goals will be explored, in addition to the larger SDG framework, as one of several approaches to share existing knowledge and allow new ideas to emerge and be jointly developed.
These goals can often seem out of the touch with our daily lives, how can we bring these actions to the local level? Can we begin to develop some local or personal SDGs?
