Emergence is the physical phenomena whereby a number of like elements combine to form a coherent system — functional, aesthetic, unique. Think snowflake. Emerge education combines elements — including Emerge participants themselves — to create a forward-thinking and acting system prepared to catalyze, participate in, and enjoy a resilient, adaptive, sustainable society, using the built environment as the primary media for this change. A society where a sustainably built environment is the norm represents a dramatic change in thinking and practice. This two-day intensive workshop conducted by EMERGE in partnership with EARTH ADVANTAGE is for business and community leaders of all levels called to create this change. Leadership to successfully foster this change can be learned and does not necessarily require celebrity status or title. It does, however, require inspiration, dedication, emergent leadership competencies and knowledge. The workshop is to be held at the Earth Advantage Classroom in Portland.  The program starts early on Friday AM and ends in the late afternoon on Saturday.  One recent participant reported that this is “the only workshop of this kind (he’s) ever attended, where it has ’stuck’”.   Workshop Faculty includes Kathleen O’Brien, Steve Loken, Ann Edminster, and John Cunningham. See faculty bios at http://emergeleadershipproject.org/emerge/faculty/. EARN CREDITS: The workshop provides 13 general GBCI approved CE hours for the purpose of maintaining your LEED credential.
