The proposed Sustainable Community Toolkit has four essential and inter-related components. Outlined below are the four components we will implement over three years, subject to funding availability.
- Sustainable Resource Hub: Produce and maintain an online platform of information and resources accessible to all stakeholders.
- Living Urban Laboratory: Establish a dedicated program of research and development for innovative urban-scale solutions to NYC’s greatest climate challenges.
- Landlord/Tenant Engagement and Public Education: Create a campaign of compelling media and collateral providing accessible information on best practices targeting each user type (owner/tenant, commercial/residential, household/small-medium-large property etc.)
- Green Workforce Training & Development: Create a recruitment campaign to attract prospective skilled employees and direct them to appropriate training programs.
