It is very exciting that for the third consecutive year, Eco-Stride is presenting a Sustainability Forum, this year at the beautiful Soka University Campus in Aliso Viejo, California on April 12th, 2012 from 8:30AM to Noon. “We are proud to present a program of speakers who will discuss sustainability, and how to bring this important subject matter into the classroom” says Ross Chun, CEO of Eco-Stride. Representatives from these distinguished organizations have been invited to participate:

The Laguna Canyon Foundation * The Surfrider Foundation * Wyland * Moulton Niguel Water District * SDG&E * Savannah’s Organic Ranch * Soka University * CR&R * Newhart Middle School * Capistrano Unified School District Board of Trustees * The City of Aliso Viejo * The City of Mission Viejo * Fluor * The Journey School * Transition Aliso Viejo * The AQMD * ValleyCrest Landscape Maintenance * Professional Community Management * Cox Communications * City Perk * And Many, Many More!

Mr. Chun also is extremely active in the schools and school districts within Orange County. We at the IEA are not really sure how he does it all, but we are glad he does.

About the Author ()

I am in my second year of a five year combination BS physics/math and MS systems engineering program offered jointly through Haverford College and UPenn. Helping my community is a lot of fun and means a great deal to me. Through the IEA and other efforts, I've come to learn how much power many can have when there is a clear positive vision, motivation and momentum.
