Sustainable Communities Forum
We need your help in creating strong, equitable and sustainable communities!
Real-world challenges and an audience eager to make a difference are key components of the Sustainable Communities Public Policy Forum and other Wisconsin Idea Forums. The University of Wisconsin’s resources -- coupled with your ideas, expertise and energy -- can create solutions for the state’s economic, environmental and social challenges. Let’s get to work together!
Free regional workshops are being held around the State to provide an overview of current sustainability efforts and conclude with participants identifying policy issues, barriers, strengths, and possibilities. Attending a Sustainable Communities Roundtable will help you connect with sustainability experts, share ideas from and for your own community and craft policy recommendations to support community sustainability throughout Wisconsin. Click here for more information on the roundtables.
Unable to attend the Roundtable? Register for the Sustainable Communities Public Policy Forum. You will learn who’s doing what to make their communities sustainable, then help write policy recommendations to move your own community and the state toward a sustainable future. These contributions will be shared in a post-conference publication, “Building Sustainable Communities in Wisconsin: Opportunities and Challenges Moving Forward.”
