Jennifer Downs serves on the board of the Green Burial Association of Maryland and is a contributor to the Green Burial Masterclass, a 12-week professional development training course for anyone interested in managing a natural burial cemetery.
In this video, Jennifer talks about the importance of building an organization and developing a team. This is true in life generally, but especially when establishing a green burial cemetery. There are so many challenges to overcome and nobody knows how to do everything. To truly have an impact, organizational sustainability is as important as environmental sustainability.
We intentionally incubate groups and teams in courses offered through Redesigning the End. You can learn more about discounts and custom team reports for your organization here: Groups & Teams.
As Jennifer Downs says, “It’s worth developing an organization that’s going to be sustaining itself going forward”.
