CITY BLITZ is a peer-facilitated program for sharing best practices and innovating new solutions that can fast-track municipal sustainability countywide. The initiative has been conceived and launched in collaboration with CSO (Chief Sustainability Officer) Strategic Taskforce members.
CITY BLITZ is about:
- Peer education in best practices, with supporting resources. Including on-location visits and discussions with key experts.
- Innovation workshops for changing the game.
- Connection with peers.
CITY BLITZ launched in June 2018 in the City of Claremont with more than 30 sustainability professionals from six municipalities in attendance. Follow-on CITY BLITZ events in other cities are soon to launch. Watch this space.
