What We Do
Sustain Charlotte is dedicated to educating, engaging and uniting citizens to solve Charlotte’s sustainability challenges. We inspire choices that lead to a healthy, equitable and vibrant community for generations to come! To achieve our mission we focus on three key strategies: Educate – We educate the public about the value to our community of sustainability and how it is achieved, including the best ideas and practices from other cities around the country. Engage – We provide opportunities for increased public engagement in the discussions and decisions that determine our future’s sustainability. Unite – We unite citizens, businesses, nonprofits, public agencies and academic institutions to develop shared visions, goals, and strategies for a sustainable region.
