Sustainable Cities

Urban Sustainability Directors Network

The Urban Sustainability Directors Network (USDN) functions as a peer to peer professional network, connecting government groups seeking realistic and achievable solutions with economic and environmental challenges cities face.

The USDN’s main activities are:

  • Building connections among members to share and spread ideas
  • Convening members to learn about and work together on specific topics
  • Funding small groups of members to innovate together

Since its formation, the scale and scope of the USDN has increased. Members have increased the peer exchange of knowledge, ramping up co-creation of new programs and encouraging collaboration through the provision of funds such as the USDN Innovation Fund, and the USDN Peer Learning Exchange Fund. Collaborative projects have dealt with issues such as food security, electric vehicle infrastructure, public outreach and education, energy efficiency and recycling.
