A Growing Network for Sustainable Communities in the US

03/05/2011 / Kaj

Green Town, a new Web site where towns can trade information on local sustainability efforts and green events.

The new Web site already connecting about 15,000 cities and towns so they can share information about community events, announcements and local resources. It includes blogs, expert advice, e-mail updates and a calendar for posts from environmental nonprofit groups.

GreenTowns is a new network that connects and celebrates local green initiatives, their leaders and the sustainable communities we are all striving to create. It brings together successful sustainability efforts at the local level, presents these initiatives by town and by category, and invites people to share their expertise and experiences.

In this way, GreenTowns makes it easy to:

  • Discover inspiring green initiatives – Find (and share) successful approaches to sustainability in your backyard, or 2000 miles away, and connect with the people behind them.
  • Share your questions, expertise & support – Use GreenTowns to share your knowledge on a green topic, help others replicate a successful initiative or learn from each other. Be a voice for sustainability in your community or simply offer an encouraging word to others.
  • Help grow sustainable communities – Get more impact from all our green efforts by connecting with each other. We each have a role to play as part of the “local infrastructure” of initiatives, expertise and human connections needed to make each town greener.
