Despite sustainability being a cross-cutting concept in prevention planning, it is often an afterthought or a moment of panic nearing the end of a grant cycle. Often our initiatives are funded by temporary grant opportunities, designed to jumpstart community change. This interactive virtual workshop will focused on the art of sustainability and how we maintain the human, social and material resources needed to achieve long-term goals for community change.
After participating in this training, participants will be able to:
- Define sustainability as a cross-cutting concept in the prevention
- Define and describe the three pillars of sustainability
- Identify a personal action step that will be implemented in the next 30 days.
