Leadership program seeks applicants

July 26, 2007


The Kansas Environmental Leadership Program is accepting applications for inclusion of the program's class of 2008.

The program, offered through Kansas State University Research and Extension., aims to include representatives from all facets of Kansas life - such as agriculture, industry and government - and span over both rural and urban communities, said Judy Willingham, program director.

The program focuses on training participants in leadership skills and about water-related issues. The program includes five three-day sessions: Hays, Jan. 9-11; Topeka, Feb. 27-29; Garden City, April 16-18; Independence/Ft. Scott, Aug. 13-15; and Wichita/Hutchinson, Oct. 29-31.

Tuition - which covers meals, lodging, bus trips, activities and materials - is $850.

The deadline for applications is Sept. 15.

Since this is about environmental leadership, I have a suggestion. Make the tour virtual, make the meetings virtual. The electricity used compared to the oil burned to have this move around the state is almost negligible. This idea that you have to get on a bus and drive around to learn is absurd. Time to move away from the old ways. Just like working from home, the time to leverage high speed digital networks is now. This Al Gore approach, use less while I use more, is disheartening.
