Greening Your Nonprofit Arts Organization


The arts have long been leaders and mirrors of social change, daring to move forward where others will not tread. In this course we take a step-by-step approach to Green your nonprofit arts organization, build community excitement while cutting operating costs, find and create internal allies, find financial support, communicate a Green philosophy to donors and patrons, identify and make substantive change, and educate and lead our audiences toward a green future. This course will address: staff/management resistance, the Triple Bottom Line, Green Team creation, spending prioritization, no-cost changes, and will walk students' Greening Plan. All course work is applied to a case study organization, which may be your own organization or one where you volunteer.
