DAS Sustainability Training
iLearn Module - NEW

admin professional The DAS Sustainability Program and Human Resource Services Division developed a sustainability training module for state government. The module includes two sections:
  • Introduction to Sustainability: a basic look at concepts and the history of sustainability in state government - why is it important?
  • Sustainability in the Workplace: an advanced segment that includes ideas to improve workplace sustainability.
Both modules are available through iLearn and are accessible to any state employee with a computer. Each module takes 10-15 minutes to complete with one essay question, as well as a follow-up email in three months that asks the participants if they’ve changed any behaviors as a response to the training. The following steps will take you to the sustainability training:
  1. Log into iLearnOregon at https://ilearn.oregon.gov.
  2. Go to the Learning Center and search for the online classes called DAS - Introduction to Sustainability and DAS - Sustainability in the Workplace. 
  3. Enroll in the class by selecting Enroll under the action menu.  You will receive a confirmation that you are enrolled.
  4. To take the online course click on the title and it will launch in a separate window (NOTE:  You will need Adobe Flash Player in order to view the course).

State Library Training Resources
In response to Oregon's sustainability initiative, the Oregon State Library has compiled a collection of resources on sustainability. This collection of books and DVDs includes material on pollution, climate change, recycling, saving energy, other sustainability topics, and two new book discussion kits.
These new discussion kits were produced by the Northwest Earth Institute in Portland and are designed for in-house training programs. Each kit contains a leader’s guide and 6 participant books. This link will take you to a full list of items in the collection.
