Sustainable Tompkins will be participating in the upcoming workshop on Thursday, October 25 on Leading High Impact Partnerships and Collaborations.  The workshop will take place at the First Unitarian Church in Ithaca from 9:30 am – 4:30 pm.

Thanks to the Park Foundation, Peter Lane, part of the renowned staff of the Institute of Conservation Leadership, will be in town to guide many of our community’s social justice and sustainability leaders through this useful workshop.

We are glad to be involved and urge others to register soon (cost is only $25).  Sustainable Tompkins has been part of many partnerships over the years, and we recognize that nurturing our capacity for skillful collaboration is absolutely essential to working together and crafting solutions to our ever intensifying and complex challenges.
