Many local governments have adopted sustainable community plans and/or community climate action plans. Our research focuses on how to implement these plans, both within the local government and through cross-sector partnerships with other local organizations (businesses, NGOs, schools, etc.). All studies support the implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
As this research is being conducted through an academic institution, students are involved in (or leading) each of the studies. The links in this section detail the active student research. Past studies are documented in the ‘publications’ tab, and results are shared through the ‘research dissemination’ tab.
