Description: Over the past decade, the corrections community’s perspective on sustainability-oriented practices has evolved to include tremendous cost savings via resource efficiency and measurable improvements in offender outcomes, as well as important partnerships between corrections facilities and programs and the communities they serve. Presenter Paul Sheldon, Senior Advisor at GreenPrisons.org will discuss examples of successful “green” programs and partnerships with federal, state, and local agencies, as well as academic, business, and non-profit partners. Evidence-based results of these innovative activities have included shifts in organizational culture, cost reductions, successful post-release employment and overall offender outcomes, and other community benefits.
