This video highlights the role public works plays in creating vibrant communities by balancing the environmental, economic and social needs of their communities. The innovative projects in seven cities across the US and Canada featured in this video reflect a broad range of solutions to community challenges and are easily replicable by other communities.

The Center for Sustainability created this video to inform, educate and inspire you to learn more about practical and effective sustainable projects and solutions because as President Diane Linderman says in the video “…regardless of the size of your town, the climate, location or the financial resources you have at your disposal, we – as public works professionals—along with the people that live in our communities – together, we are all stewards of sustainability.”
