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.
