Almost 60 communities across the U.S. have been certified using the STAR Community Rating System, which evaluates environmental, economic, and social sustainability. But certification is only the first step towards creating more sustainable communities. The staff leads for STAR certification from Iowa City, Evanston, and Dubuque will share how they approached the certification results and began the transition to implementable results. The panel discussion will give audience members a deeper understanding of the use and benefit of sustainability certification, the relationship between sustainability performance metrics and community planning and policy making, and how to engage community leaders and residents in creating a sustainable community.
Please join us in honoring those who are dedicated to protecting our environment, our health, and our quality of life. The awards ceremony will recognize environmental leadership in sustaining and improving air, land, and water quality and protecting public health.
The Lincoln and Lancaster County Environmental Leadership Awards Breakfast will be held on Wednesday, November 2, at the Nebraska Innovation Campus Conference Center, beginning at 7:30 a.m. and concluded by 9:30 a.m. Pre-paid reservations of $15 per person are due by October 26.
