SECC Partners with U.S Green Building Council

Tuesday, February 11, 2014

On Tuesday February 4th, 2014 the SECC staff Diane Burnham and Raymonde Vance completed the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) Illinois Chapter-Community Engagement Training program.

This program, (funded by the Chicago Community Trust (CCT), the Boeing Foundation, Northern Trust, the Field Foundation, Chicago Community Loan Fund and the USGBC), was designed to broaden the SECC‘s image of what a sustainable community looks like, expand our tool box of methods, provide a structured opportunity for experimenting with these methods, and enabled us to form and strengthen relationships to increase our GHNA Project.

Diane and Raymonde completed 7 workshops in total and presented the Green Healthy Neighborhoods in Action program to the cohort on Tuesday February 4th at the final training workshop.

Great job SECC staff!
