2021 Sustainability Planning Cohort Training
This capacity-building cohort provides structured technical assistance to guide local governments through the steps necessary to develop a Sustainability Plan. A sustainability plan addresses social, economic, and environmental elements of community development and management.
ICLEI will provide 15 member participants with: monthly web-based presentations for ten months; peer exchange and learning, including sustainability best practices; ICLEI’s extensive Sustainability Plan Toolkit, templates, and other resources; and individualized assistance with GHG inventory and planning features in ClearPath, if applicable. Participants are committed to establish a citizen sustainability task force during 2021.
