NHBSR, through the generous support of Timberland and in partnership with the University of New Hampshire, launched the inaugural Sustainability Institute on October 4th through the 6th. The Institute was attended by twenty-two business people from sixteen organizations throughout the Northeast. (New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut and New Jersey were represented.) The certificate program featured three days of interactive sessions, all focused on further developing attendees' understanding of sustainability within their business world, communities and the natural environment. Feedback from attendees included comments like "You could not get this much rich content and discussion with high level peers anywhere else. I found the Institute incredibly valuable." and "Fabulous speakers and great mix of topics ..." and "I think this is the wave of the future!" We are already planning next year's Institue and hope you'll plan to be there!
