The most fundamental role of the Designer is to inspire and solve problems creatively and practically. Site design is both an art and science. Landscape designers are place-makers and space-shapers. Sustainable site design considers the impacts to future generations of the design solutions we choose to solve today’s problems. By thoughtfully synthesizing site information, namely the natural and human factors that affect a site, we can create forward-looking design solutions that well serve both our human constituents and the natural world well into the future.

This year, the Society for Nutrition Education and Behavior's (SNEB) annual conference is located in our nation’s Capital. With looming cuts to important social programs, what better opportunity could there be to gather the troops and educate our elected officials on the importance of nutrition education in our country?

 

 

While we will be highlighting lawmakers in DC, the tips covered can be applied to any visits and connections with policy makers at all levels.  Don’t miss out on the important information! 

 

 

This is great for anyone who wants to share the importance of nutrition education with their elected officials. It will also help people attending the "Nutrition Educators As Advocates" pre-conference session get ready to visit their Members of Congress. 

 

 

Cost: This webinar is free to all attendees.
