We live in a world that is profoundly shaped by the digital environment. Moreover, with the evolution of society and technology, people expect to access content in virtual spaces. We have now reached a point in history when it’s a necessity to become proficient at creating and delivering compelling digital content and facilitate learning in virtual spaces—although most feel unprepared to do so.

This practical, evidence-based workshop provides a foundation on how to educate and engage adults with digital opportunities. Utilizing an energetic, participatory format, this workshop will help attendees understand what motivates adults to learn, how to excel as a presenter and facilitator of learning, and best practices for creating and delivering dynamic content.

Understanding consumption-based emissions to influence procurement strategies

Tuesday, April 23, 2024. 1:00pm ET

The goods and services that universities, government agencies and other large organizations purchase as part of their regular operations can add up to a significant percentage of their carbon footprint. Like other scope 3 emissions, however, it’s traditionally been very difficult to measure these and other consumption-based impacts, leaving EPP strategies to rely on guesswork and assumptions. But as sustainability efforts mature from more of an aspiration to a firm commitment, a growing number of organizations are searching for ways to connect procurement to actual data.
This webinar will feature real-world examples of large organization’s efforts to inventory consumption-based environmental impacts and find ways to use the data to guide procurement decisions.
