Creating Change Locally

“Being a change agent means being a catalyst—raising ideas at the right moment with the right people. You need to be a role model with our community by providing information and supporting others.” 

Why LSAW?

“I heard Leading Sustainability at Work when I was researching funding options for the Augustana Miquelon Lake Research Station, a research station focused on sustainablility research and operations. I teach about sustainability, do research on sustainability and I am on the sustainability committee at Augustana Campus, so I thought it seemed like a good thing for me to do.” 

A Valuable Experience

“It was affirming to be in a group of like-minded people with similar motivation and passions. It was also a great networking opportunity, so I now have colleagues I can call on and they can call on me. The course was full of great ideas and good stories, which were inspiring.” 

A Successful Outcome

“The course motivated me to redouble my efforts and to weave some of the ideas into my work and community. For example, I made sure that our grand opening of the Augustana Miquelon lake Research Station was Green Spaces certified.”
