BCC Hosts Sustainability 101

By Michelle Bliss

03-23-11 – Brunswick Community College is hosting a Sustainability Symposium and Expo in Leland on Friday.

The Green Information and Training Center at Brunswick Community College has been in the works for about a year and Friday's event will kickoff the organization.

The center's coordinator, Marilyn Graham, says that event organizers have incorporated different industries, so that workshops and speakers will address areas of sustainability outside of green construction practices.

"We wanted to have people who wanted to know what sustainable agriculture was, wanted to know how biotechnology strategy was for sustainability sustainable tourism, what's that all about?"

The new center will also be offering classes, including a course on solar power installation starting in May.
