Municipal Sustainability Checklist

We have created a municipal “sustainability checklist” that can help towns compare what they are doing with other towns, as well as get ideas and encourage collaboration.

For organizers, the checklist is an excellent tool to organize local groups around, and to build networks of people who care about sustainability.
