The Science of Sustainability

Three-Day Training Intensive

July 29-31 at KQED (2601 Mariposa St., San Francisco, CA 94110)

The three-day Training Intensive is your team’s launch point for learning about QUEST resources and content. It is composed of mini-workshops, hands-on projects, and team planning. Each team will set goals and begin to develop their multimedia project. More information.

Team Meetings

At least one every other month beginning in August (monthly meetings are encouraged!)

In order to take advantage of the momentum gathered during the Training Intensive, each team will meet within one month after the Training Intensive. This meeting is not facilitated by QUEST, but is an important part of the Training Intensive. Each team will then meet at least once every other month in order to develop projects, update implementation plans and provide each other with support. These meetings may take place during time provided at the monthly QUEST follow-up trainings and workshops.
