Tomorrow Live Green in Plano launches a new Sustainable Connections program for employees. Get ready to experience and learn more about operational green practices and green behaviors for the workplace and your personal lives. Sustainable Connections is a two-pronged approach to employee engagement which includes Lunch & Learns and S.E.E. Plano field trips, allowing you to mix and match experiences as time and interest allow.
If you’re curious about how sustainability is integrated in the community and within City operations, be sure to sign up for upcoming events. Be on the lookout for periodic information about S.E.E Plano field trips and Lunch & Learns. New trips and learning opportunities will be added continually throughout the year.
Here’s a preview of what’s coming…
Join us for the first Lunch & Learn featuring Harrington Library’s August Artist in Residence, VET. VET incorporates recycling awareness in her artwork by sharing innovative ways to repurpose discarded items. VET will be sharing how her platform of redesign and repurposing art impacts the community. Pizza is provided, but seating is limited. Sign up here to reserve your seat.
