The Sustainable Communities Leadership Network helps local officials and staff to access and share resources and tools that encourage their communities to consider and apply economically, socially and environmentally sustainable practices.
Local officials and staff possess sustainability expertise that is a valuable resource, and is helpful for others interested in undertaking similar programs. The Leadership Network is a platform for you to share your expertise and help others learn from your experience. Email an Institute for Local Government staff member so we can help you share your story.
Peer learning is an effective way to share best practices and lessons learned. View profiles of leading sustainability practitioners in California, then who are working on innovative policies and programs in their communities.
Local agencies are leaders in promoting sustainability in their community. The Institute for Local Government invites California cities and counties that are leading the way in climate action implementation to participate in the Beacon Program, the Institute’s sustainability recognition program.
