Clean Economy Series

The colleges of DCCCD are proud sponsors of the Clean Economy Series — hands-on workshops offering practical knowledge on how to live and conduct business in a more sustainable manner that supports people, the planet and the economy.

Conducted by nationally renowned thought leaders in their area of expertise, the workshops will touch, educate, inspire and move participants to action. The series began in Santa Fe and is produced by the New Mexico nonprofit Carbon Economy Series.
