This capacity-building cohort provides structured technical assistance and peer-to-peer knowledge sharing to guide local governments through the steps necessary to develop a sustainability plan.
Sustainability plans unite community stakeholders and government officials under a common vision with a set of goals and metrics. These plans help jurisdictions prioritize their strategies and effectively track progress towards organizational sustainability goals. A sustainability plan is a framework, ideally integrated across departments, for short-term and long-term planning. It is not only a useful tool for local governments starting their sustainability journey, but more advanced jurisdictions can use the planning process to bring a more cohesive, cross-departmental approach to meet community goals.
ICLEI will provide participants with:
- Live, 1-hour web-based presentations monthly for ten months
- Peer exchange and learning, including sustainability best practices from internationally recognized sustainability plans / planners
- ICLEI’s extensive Sustainability Plan Toolkit, templates, and other resources
