GreenPrint - Education and Community Outreach
Education, awareness, and advocacy of sustainability principles and concepts are essential components to the success of a community’s environmental stewardship programs. Promoting awareness and active involvement can contribute to behavioral change with tangible environmental outcomes and benefits. Over the years, the City of Tallahassee, in conjunction with numerous community partners, have implemented and supported initiatives to educate its employees and citizens on environmental stewardship, economic sustainability, and social well-being.
The Education and Community Outreach Target Area proposes the implementation of strategies to raise greater environmental awareness among City employees and community residents as well as to develop educational and outreach programs for schools and universities.
Target Area Goal: Educate the community on the issues and practices of sustainability to facilitate and promote greater environmental and economic stewardship, as well as social equity.
