Many people want to be part of advancing sustainability but may not be sure of how to get started. Online instruction company EcoAchievers' business goals include spreading the word about green careers, and in line with that goal, a free course will be offered on Tuesday, Dec. 1, 6:15-8pm, at the Monroe County Public Library in Bloomington, Indiana. (In the spirit of full disclosure, I am one of the principals of Eco Achievers and my husband is the instructor for the Green Careers course.) The course will:
- Provide an overview of the future of sustainability
- Discuss some of the many related career options in the area of sustainability
- Help attendees start to identify a role in the field
The instructor for the course, David Gulyas, is a LEED Accredited Professional who recently completed construction of his high-performance green-built home on Bloomington’s West Side. He is on the Steering Committee of the USGBC’s So. Central Branch (Bloomington) and helped plan the first Green Building Tour of Bloomington. David has presented in Bloomington on such topics as Guiding Principles of Green Interior Design, and the ReGreen program for Interior Design and Construction. As part of his work with EcoAchievers, LLC, he has developed online courses on topics such as Life Cycle Assessment and Harmonizing Historical Preservation and Green Building (in development).Before moving to Bloomington, David was an Interior Designer (ASID) in Oak Park, IL.
