Growing Livable Communities Webinars Two Part, Webinar Event Dec. 9th and Dec. 16th 11:30 am – 1:00 pm EST

Are you concerned that current efforts to make our communities more sustainable are falling short?

Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to attend a three-day workshop about establishing grassroots green organizations that promote local sustainable practices and also have positive economic impacts in the community.  The workshop was a product of theLivability Project and led by its founder Dave Feldman.  Dave is a seasoned organizer and environmental professional.  He is also the founder and first Executive Director ofBethesda Green (Maryland), one of the country’s most successful green community organizations.

My workshop experience was so educational and on point that I told Dave that if he developed an online greening program for communities, I would endorse it and promote it to the SSF community.  He did.  

I invite you to take Dave’s online program of two 90-minute webinars where you will learn how to accelerate your community’s transition to a sustainable and prosperous economy, making it more adaptable, resilient, and durable from all angles — financial, social and environmental.


Growing Livable Communities Webinars

Two Part, Webinar Event

Dec. 9th and Dec. 16th

11:30 am – 1:00 pm EST


Standard Price: $99

Student Price: $59

Previously offered only as in-person workshops costing hundreds, Dave is introducing this inaugural online webinar series for only $99. However, the SSF community gets a 20% discount off the standard price.  Use code –  SSF – at registration.  

Learn Dave’s proven strategies to create, organize, coordinate, incubate, and grow a sustainable community. Additionally, he will provide all registered attendees with a “toolkit” to help prepare you to tackle green projects in your community. 

Communities can make fast green shifts that have dramatic impacts. This is why I am recommending this live event to introduce Dave’s proven process to everyone in my network.

Presenter, Dave Feldman, is Founding Director of Bethesda Green and CEO of Livability Project.  He is a coalition builder, strategic thinker, entrepreneur, and sustainability thought-leader furthering the goals of regional, sustainable, and economic development. He brings together knowledge and experience from business, government, and the not-for-profit sectors to create applicable solutions that create livable communities for the longterm.

As we speak, we’re constructing a Recycle and Community Center on Chira Island (RCCC) in Costa Rica. The RCCC has been shaped by a participatory design and build studio led by A-01. The project was initiated and will be run by women association ADATA (Asociación de Damas Trabajando para el Ambiente). Their dream is an important step towards a sustainable solution for the growing garbage problem on the island.

We already have a lot of actors supporting the construction of the Center with material and financial donations. However, we still lack the funds to build the roof. And that’s where I thought you might help us 🙂 We started a crowdfunding campaign at IndieGoGo. Here is the link:

I hoped that you could help us to spread the message of this cool and important project! How? Maybe you could share this link: on your social media, blog, with your friends, family, and anyone you think might be interested in this sustainable solution for the health and environmental problems on Isla Chira.

It would be awesome if you would help us with this! It makes a HUGE difference for the women of ADATA, their families and neighbors!
