We love exploring sustainability in many aspects of life including farming, gardening, agriculture and forestry. But green buildings, homes and public works projects are quickly becoming the next trend. Sustainable communities are continuing to surface across the nation as major cities are making the necessary changes to reduce energy demand, utilize renewable power, and lessen their environmental impact.
I wanted to share this infographic, which was created by Norwich University’s Online Masters in Public Administration program. It gives an easily visual guide and in-depth look at sustainable communities, examining the relationship between resources and infrastructures, as well as noting successful initiatives and projects.
Check out the resource below for more information and be sure to let me know your thoughts! Have you seen any eco-friendly buildings, or is your city making any of these sustainable improvements?
