Candy Castellanos to Discuss King County’s Strategic Climate Action Plan May 31

Candy Castellanos will speak about King County’s Strategic Climate Action Plan as part of the WWU Huxley College of the Environment Speaker Series at 4 p.m. on Thursday, May 31 in Academic Center West room AW-204 on the Western Washington University campus.

The presentation is free and open to the public.

Sustainability has come to mean many things to many people. Often it takes the shape of describing behaviors, goals, and frameworks organizations or individuals use to minimize environmental impacts. Less common, sustainability is understood as an interconnected system. Using the lens of change leadership, the tenants of resilience, and models of organizational development, Castellanos will explore what it means to sustain the members of the sustainability movement and sustainability ecosystem itself.
