To provide businesses, government and society with leadership, coordination, and education for all three dimensions of sustainable development: economic, environmental and social.
The Sustainability Institute is housed at Western Technical College but serves the 7 Rivers Region. We provide a forum to raise all efforts by aligning with local partnerships and resources to enhance offerings. Our hopes are to grow and cultivate sustainability in our region by hosting conversations and conferences to move sustainability forward in our region.
