Ambassadors of Sustainability

Tucson Needs You!!
So Does the World . . .

The future of our planet is undecided.
It will be people who care about our future who define it.
People like YOU.

Develop your understanding, skill, and caring for our planet through our Sustainability Ambassadors program. Become an Ambassador for the world you inhabit!

Sustainable Tucson works with the local community to cultivate a richer environmental landscape and build a sustainable future right here in southern Arizona. We have:

  • Hosted presentations by scholars, activists, and policy-makers on pressing issues and cutting-edge solutions
  • Promoted zero-waste thinking in policy and personal lifestyle
  • Contributed to climate plans for public institutions
  • Spawned initiatives such as the Green Retrofit, Pollinator Gardens, and the Repair Cafe

Ambassadors of Sustainability have been a big part of this growth and effort. You are cordially invited to join us:

Day/time: Twelve Saturdays, 10 am to noon
Dates: Feb 3 – Apr 27, 2024 (no class Apr 20)
Venue: Online
Cost: $80; Sustainable Tucson members $60;
students $30; scholarships available on request

In this course, you will learn alongside like-minded individuals, hearing from local experts on topics like energy transformation, sustainable and affordable housing, water conservation, and more. Skills of inquiry, empathy, public speaking, and emotional regulation are woven throughout. Each class is complemented with 1-2 hours of reading, screening, and reflection.

By course completion, you will feel more connected and better prepared to serve as an ambassador for a region that lives in harmony with its desert home.

From a course participant:

“I wanted to thank you for facilitating such a rich experience these past couple of months. I have learned so much about sustainability and ways to grow my character and communication skills. . . . The program was amazing.”
