Northern Arizona University's Master of Arts in Sustainable Communities Program presents the

2011 Summer Institute for Sustainable Communities
Join us in beautiful Flagstaff, AZ for sustainability workshops themed on democracy, civic engagement and community building!

The SUS Summer Institute for Sustainable Communities offers graduate students and the greater Flagstaff community the opportunity to learn some hands-on skills.

The SUS Summer Institure offers a variety of workshops and certificate courses each year including but not limited to a permaculture certification course (2010) and a master bee-keeper course (2011).

Seperate from the SUS Summer Institute program, NAU offers a CM 499 LEED Design course than can be taken to work towards the LEED GA certification. This past spring 16 students and community members attended the course, took the LEED GA exam, and passed to become accredited LEED GA's.
