See a Different Side of Plano with Sustainable Connections

Sustainable connections team

Live Green in Plano launched 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.

  • Lunch & Learns – Occur quarterly over the lunch hour with employees participating voluntarily
  • S.E.E. Plano field trips – Occur during work hours with employees registering to attend, as they would any training program through PeopleSoft.

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…
