ISC is inviting teams of six senior officials and key stakeholders from up to 12 U.S. cities and metropolitan regions to participate in this academy—a peer-learning and training program to build the capacity of practitioners in U.S. cities and metropolitan regions to advance and accelerate efforts to strengthen regional economies, delivering prosperity and sustainability.
The workshop, and the resource guide that will accompany it, will provide efficient access to much of the best available information in this emerging field, and it will offer opportunities to learn from your peers and national experts, and to strategize with your team.
Who Should Attend?
Teams should be made up of the following senior officials and practitioners, who collectively have the scope of responsibility and authority to take the knowledge and information from the CLA and turn it into tangible, on-the-ground improvements once they return home:
- The sustainability director (or equivalent) of a major city in the region;
- A senior city official with lead responsibility for sustainable economic development;
- A senior regional official who works at the intersection of sustainability, economic development, land use and transportation planning;
- A senior state official with lead responsibility for sustainable economic development;
- An important private sector employer or a current or potential investor in the region’s “green economy”;
- A senior representative from a local or regional non-governmental organization promoting sustainable economic development.
