Sustainable Maryland Offers Leadership Training in Sustainability Workshops

Sustainable Maryland is offering a series of Leadership Training in Sustainability Workshops in November.  The workshops are open to county and municipal elected officials and senior-level staff.


Strong stakeholder perspectives often surround sustainability issues and opportunities. Climate change, water conservation, renewable energy, and green infrastructure are just a few issues that frequently generate disagreement and debate and which can benefit from leadership skills to engage diverse stakeholders, reduce contention and garner support. These workshops, conducted by expert facilitators from the Environmental Finance Centers at University of Maryland and Dominican University of California, will incorporate examples, stories and tools that will:

  • Provide the skills to understand and better manage interactions with staff, board and/or community,
  • Introduce tools to help reduce conflict and plan for the future, and
  • Improve participant’s ability to turn dry numbers into a compelling story and message.
