Sustainability Plan Tool-Kit

Seven Generations Ahead helped create a sustainability plan toolkit for municipalitiesSustainability Plan ToolKit

SGA collaborated with Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP), the Metropolitan Mayors Caucus (MMC) and several Councils of Government and non-profit organization partners to develop CMAP's Sustainability Plan Toolkit.

The Toolkit serves as a guide and playbook for local communities on process, strategies and indicators related to sustainability planning.

To create the toolkit, we engaged community leaders in building consensus around a core set of sustainability indicators that correspond to regional goals. Now the toolkit supportslocal plan development.

Ultimately, the project intends to lay the groundwork for a 25-community pilot Chicago Metro Area Community Sustainability Report Card that measures local community progress against regional and local sustainability goals.
