C3 Spring 2023 Sustainability Leadership Training

C3 is a community engagement program that works to empower Chicagoans to improve the quality of life in our neighborhoods through grassroots environmental service projects that protect our water, clean our air, restore our land, and save energy. We hold an 8 week training program that addresses sustainability issues unique to Chicago, taught by community leaders and experts in those fields. After the course, trainees are provided funding and support to go out into their communities and organize projects to benefit their communities. We believe an effective way to address climate and sustainability issues in our city is to support Chicagoans to become community leaders with specific tools to meet the specific needs of their communities.
