A message from our CEO

As 2012 gets into full swing, we at Sustainable Cities International are feeling very positive about the future despite the gloomy economic climate in many countries.

Never before has the need for transformation to more sustainable living been so widely recognized and accepted. The future really is in cities, as they are the smart place to create change!

For the past two decades, SCI has built the capacity of cities to address the complex challenges of sustainability through approaches that look at urban systems in an integrated way. We anticipate that 2012 will be a year in which SCI increases its ability to support local authorities in putting their long-term sustainability visions and strategies into action. Moving from problem-solving to more effective collaborative actions is key. We are excited about the opportunities new forms of multi-level and multi-layer collaboration will bring in the year ahead.

To all our Member Cities – mark your calendars and join us for our SCI Network Annual Symposium being hosted by Metro Vancouver on April 30-May 3. Hope to see you all there!
