For Registration Form Click Here
i-SUSTAIN has led over 20 sustainability delegations to Denmark and Sweden and is leading another one September 9-14, 2018. The City of Spokane will be the host governmental agency in a professional knowledge exchange trip to Denmark and Sweden in September 2018, focused on sustainable infrastructure and the green economy. Sustainability capitalizes on the triple bottom line and is the best direction to guide Spokane’s future growth to outcompete less sustainable and less resourced cities in the Intermountain West. Thanks to the generosity of the Scan/Design Foundation, all public sector professionals who will be attending have been offered a fully paid scholarship. Private sector professionals are encouraged to join this delegation but are responsible for their own funding.
Scholarships for Public Officials
Scan|Design Foundation is providing 12 scholarships to public officials for the September 2017 delegation, as a part of its mission to foster knowledge exchanges and collaboration between Washington state and Denmark. Scholarships cover the program, hotel, program-related transportation, breakfast and a lunch or dinner every day. Airfare is covered up to $1,200.
