A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome:

Welcome to the This Way to Sustainability Conference at California
State University, Chico!

This conference is hosted by the Institute for Sustainable Development
at CSU, Chico and the Associated Students of CSU, Chico.

We hope these next few days bring together people who care deeply about the
future of the North State and our planet, to learn about pressing sustainability
issues and to create a space for dialogue and action. A great effort has
been made to establish sessions that cover a broad range of sustainability
topics as well as put sustainability first in the conference operations. Enjoy
the conference, and thanks to all of you who have made this possible.

Purpose: Explore approaches that will make a difference for a sustainable future. Our annual conference provides a forum to discuss current issues that are relevant to us all. We seek to develop common ground to help build a sustainable society; one that balances economic needs, social needs and environmental realities. We will address solutions for the global problems we are all now facing. The conference will include workshops, seminars, posters, and facilitated discussions.

Audience: Our audience is broad but aimed at the growing number of faculty, staff, students, administrators, public officials and citizens who embrace the concept of sustainable development, who wish to work together to build sustainable communities, who believe that we can learn from one another, and who realize there are many voices and perspectives that must be heard. Sessions are designed for beginners, as well as those with advanced knowledge. So that everyone has a chance to participate we've kept our registration fees to a minimum.
