Detroit Sustainability Action Agenda

We're excited to launch Detroit's first  Sustainability Action Agenda in June 2019. The Agenda is a strategic roadmap developed by the City of Detroit Office of Sustainability to create a more sustainable Detroit where all Detroiters thrive and prosper in an equitable, green city; have access to affordable, quality homes; live in clean, connected neighborhoods; and work together to steward resources. It builds on the decades of progress that organizations throughout the city have made towards a more sustainable Detroit. Click through to learn more about the Agenda.
