What They Do

The Urban Sustainability Directors Network (USDN) is a rapidly evolving network of 100-plus municipal sustainability directors who are on the front lines of climate change and local innovation. The connections fostered by USDN have become increasingly important as cities large and small lead the way in developing the next generation of sustainable communities.

USDN offers members peer-to-peer networking opportunities, creates solutions that scale through a funded Collaborative Innovation System, and expands access through regional networks.

What We Love

The Urban Sustainability Directors Network is an accelerator of innovation and creativity in cities. The organization enables the network to collaborate quickly to find solutions to local sustainability challenges through information sharing, pilot programs, and funds that spur innovation in the field. USDN’s efficient, structured approach maximizes the benefits of collaborative innovation.
