The Urban Sustainability Directors Network (USDN) is a peer-to-peer network of local government professionals from cities across the United States and Canada dedicated to creating a healthier environment, economic prosperity, and increased social equity. Our dynamic network enables sustainability directors and staff to share best practices and accelerate the application of good ideas across North America.
Our work is member led and member driven, meaning that members collectively determine what priorities they have each year and lead the work to carry them out. USDN’s ultimate goal is to build and strengthen the connections between members in order to quickly access each other’s knowledge and expertise to achieve better, more effective outcomes at scale.
The connections fostered by USDN have become increasingly important as cities both large and small lead the way in developing the next generation of sustainable communities.
