The Center develops and identifies tools and best practices to assist public works professionals in achieving sustainability in their communities.  The Center’s Leadership Group develops professional training opportunities, such as Click, Listen & Learn webinars, the Sustainability in Public Works Annual Conference, and the specialized workshops for public works professionals. An important part of the Center’s mission is to identify and enter into strategic partnerships with Federal, state and local decision makers and other key associations or groups working on sustainability issues. The Center also advocates for sustainability principles at the Federal, state and local level and develops advocacy priorities and position statements to guide APWA’s advocacy efforts.
