Recaps and Resources
Curious what your peers are doing to implement sustainable practices in their communities? Need help in avoiding the hidden hurdles and pitfalls along the way?
Recently, an enthusiastic gathering of municipal staffers and others representing over 40 local governments and universities took part in a special full-day conference in Lansing to learn more about sustainability work throughout Michigan, sponsored by the MDEQ Office of Environmental Assistance.
In fact, we believe the issue is so important, we wanted to share some of the highlights and key resources provided at the event. The whole point is sharing information and ideas among those who are leading the way toward a greener future for Michigan. To participate in the network, sign up for the Green Communities Challenge.
