TeleWork as a Sustainable Solution

For some time now I have been in regular communication with Kate Lister, the Executive Director & Principal Investigator for the Telework Research Network - check out their informative website here. You'll be re-directed to Undress for Success which is also the title of a new book by Kate Lister and Tom Harnish. You'll be hearing much more about this in coming weeks because I'm currently reading the book and developing a series of articles for this blog. We also hope to have Kate Lister here in the Langley/Vancouver area very soon to enlighten us on the possibilities of TeleWorking.

Close to home, Kate alerted me yesterday to this Calgary article about teleworking and the City of Calgary. Federal funding was obtained for the program! Unfortunately the federal ecoMOBILITY funding that Calgary received has ended. 

Kate Lister recently gave a presentation to the San Diego Sustainability Council and was gracious to provide us with a link that you can view above. You can order the here in Canada by clicking this link for Chapters or Amazon Canada. Keep watching this blog for more information on telework and Kate Lister!

Hi Joe,
Great that you're interested in the Calgary program. As the program manager of this program funded by the Federal Government I can assure you that the funding has not ceased- workshiftcalgary is very much alive and well! In fact we just hosted a Telework Week and launched a video you can see on www.workshiftcalgary.com... Robyn
