Each year CSE hosts environmental leadership delegations. This year, we are planning a delegation of energy efficiency experts from Rivne, Ukraine, to the Bay Area. In 2014, we hosted in Austin, TX a delegation of young environmental leaders from Kazakhstan. In 2013, we hosted our first social entrepreneurship delegation and introduced our Russian partners to Bay Area organizations who are building innovative solutions to social problems.
