S.P.A.R.K Forum

February 24, 2016 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm

STAR

From the State of Texas Alliance for Recycling

S.P.A.R.K. Forum = Supporting Partnerships And Recycling Knowledge.

Join STAR Central Texas for a day of information sharing and partnership building.

STAR Central Texas is the new name for the Central Texas Recycling Committee (CTRC) of STAR (State of Texas Alliance for Recycling).

The S.P.A.R.K Forum is aimed at agencies, institutions, and businesses striving to reduce waste.

What: This year’s forum focuses on “becoming a change agent” to reach our goals in sustainable programing. Many of us work in environments where we are alone in trying to advance for zero waste, recycling, or sustainability within our unique organization or under unique circumstances. In these environments, it is easy to feel discouraged and that there is no one to turn to for guidance, but there are common themes that unite all of the work that we do. Every project has to accomplish two goals: 1) Convincing the decision-makers to take action and 2) Successfully executing the vision with limited resources. The SPARK Forum will focus on helping you achieve these goals so you can advance zero waste in Central Texas.

Our Keynote speaker is Brad Pease, Vice President of Paladino, a green building and sustainability consulting firm, who will share insights on how to gain the support of key decision-makers. After a networking lunch,  attendees will have the chance to participate in an active learning workshop on behavior change and hear panel presentations focused on “implementing the change” success stories.
