Assessing Opportunities for Local Officials to Share Information on Sustainable Communities
Sustainable Communities Questionnaire
In July of 2011, the Institute for Local Government (ILG) circulated the online Sustainable Communities Questionnaire to a group of almost 2,000 people interested in sustainability, focusing on local officials and staff. The goal was to collect information on:
- Sustainability topics of interest to local officials
- Effective ways to present information and foster peer learning among the local officials and staff, and
- The extent of local knowledge or expertise regarding sustainability best practices.
The online questionnaire remained open for a month and 688 individuals responded. This 4-page document summarized some of the results.
