Leadership in Sustainability: The critical role of nonprofit organizations in West Michigan
Sustainability development in West Michigan is taking hold. Led initially by the private sector, promoted quite visibly by the City of Grand Rapids and increasingly embraced by nonprofit organizations, this lunch and learn highlights the leadership of local nonprofit organizations in promoting a sustainable region for the future. This does not focus on how nonprofits can be sustainable, but instead their role in contributing to a sustainable society. Obstacles towards transformational change will be discussed.
Presenter: Richard Jelier, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Public Administration and Interim Director, School of Public, Nonprofit and Health Administration, Grand Valley State University.
