Our Community Learning Partners

Municipalities, Counties, Rural Communities

Communities have been tasked with the impressive challenge of integrating sustainability into the ways that we design our communities and manage our resources.

What does sustainability mean for a municipality?  What are the tools to implement a community sustainability plan? How can all community stakeholders be brought onto the same page? How can we make our sustainability plan work for us?

Sustainability Resources can help identify practical solutions for sustainability! 

Implementation Support for Sustainability Plans

Sustainability Resources has developed a four point assessment and reporting strategy to advance community sustainability plans at any stage. The strategy includes:

    1. Community Systems Analysis - we assess your community sustainability goals against your existing operational strategies, local initiatives, and infrastructure management.
    2. Indicators of Achievement - we work with you to develop indicators of achievement that measure your impact in each one of your sustainability pillars (economic, environmental, social).
    3. Community Sustainability Action Plan - we help identify highest impact activities in short, medium and long term and work with your community stakeholders to confirm actionable targets and associated actions.
    4. Measuring and Reporting Success - we provide your community with a measurement framework to assist with the reporting to key stakeholders, funders, and the public.
