Why you should attend:
When you see the phrase sustainability plans on a donor funding application or project report do you panic? When you see the word sustainability, do you assume it means the financial sustainability of the project? Are you unsure about how innovation links to sustainability?

Identify the different aspects of sustainability and how they relate to your project
