Workshop Coordinator Rob Jackson Accepted into Sustainability Leaders Program
We’re thrilled to announce that Rob Jackson, Arcosanti’s Workshop Coordinator, has been accepted into Arizona Forward’s first ever Emerging Sustainability Leaders program.
Arizona Forward’s mission is to “bring business and civic leaders together to promote cooperative efforts to improve the environmental sustainability and economic vitality of our state and local regions.”
This competitive program will equip the next generation of leaders in the ever growing Arizona sustainability network with an understanding of the pillars of sustainability and tools for practical application of initiatives. The cohort will meet each month for the next six months.
During theses classes they will develop a broad awareness and understanding of the social, environmental, ethical and economical challenges and opportunities of sustainability in Arizona. The program also focuses on developing skills to begin driving business leadership towards renewable systems thinking, and knowledge building to evaluate strategic levers for change.
Although Rob has only been a resident of Arcosanti for a few months, he has already made great strides towards reinvigorating our workshop program. You can read about those efforts and get more information about the 2019 workshop cycle here.
We look forward to watching our Workshop Coordinator develop the critical skills necessary to meet the needs of sustainable practices, for the benefit of both Arcosanti and our region at large.
