Thank you to everyone who attended and supported our previous Sustainability Tours in 2015 and 2016!
The 2nd Sustainability Tour was held during the Washoe County School District Fall break in October 2016. A behavior change survey indicated that there was a 50% increase in knowledge about sustainability issues. Before attending the tour only 33% of the students were interested in pursuing green careers or incorporating sustainability into their future career. After the tour, that number jumped to 93%!!
Carol Perry, one of our tour partners from the Regional Transport Commission said “The Sustainability Tours offer so much to the students and the community at large, and there are rewards for the participating partners as well. It’s quite uplifting to be able to assist in inspiring the next generation to understand the importance of sustainable practices and to engage in more three-sphere compatible behaviors.”
