For Citizens and Communities

You Are Welcome at Any of Our Events

Citizens interested in pollution prevention to support safer communities and products are welcome to register for any of our training events. Some events will be very technical, addressing chemistries and production-related performance of alternatives, and some will be more general, targeting organic lawn care or safer housekeeping formulations and techniques.

TURI staff have conducted trainings throughout the state for organizations and municipal entities, on large and small scales. Our trainings are geared towards specific audience needs. Whether you are interested in learning about toxics in your daily life, what you can do to reduce toxics in your children's school, what your town can do to eliminate the use of pesticides, or whatever your toxic chemical concern may be, we are happy to address the issue in a tailored presentation.

In addition, several of our grantees have prepared trainings as part of their grant projects. Those presentations are found under specific topic areas or under project descriptions.

Explore the trainings included on this web site to see if one meets your needs, or contact us to discuss new presentation or training needs.
