The good news is that Worldchanging is highlighting ICLEI's newly released sustainability toolkit for city governments so I have something to entertain me during this defensive slugfest. Fayetteville is one of ICLEI's 1,100 member cities so I have my members only jacket and we have full access to the toolkit that was released Friday. Here's a synopsis:
ICLEI's Sustainability Planning Toolkit, based on the model pioneered by City of New York's PlaNYC, contains comprehensive, step-by-step guidance to develop a sustainability plan for cities, towns, and counties of all sizes. It follows a proven, straightforward, and flexible process to create a successful, long-term plan that brings together environmental, economic, and social initiatives under one holistic vision to improve the livability of communities and create lasting benefits.
