We launched Sustainable Sacramento and hatched the vision for its current development plan in the Spring of 2014. Read more about us here. Our philosophy is simple: the Smart and Sustainable Sacramento is a city where its residents are engaged and active in making the changes necessary to realize a zero waste, carbon-neutral, closed-loop, and fully sustainable future.
Since then, our vision has evolved to reflect a clear roadmap of action: to deliver monthly festival-like education and engagement experiences, develop and deliver unique social and mobile technology to help local citizens green their lives through practical tools and relevant information, and to develop and deliver powerful communication messages that helps everyday citizens make sustainable steps towards a greener life and a smarter, more sustainable city.
This page below is all about the ideas, energy, and "vision fuel" we captured in June as part of our "Shared Vision" kick-off event and outreach activities.

But wait! We're just getting started…
We're heading into our third official month of events and activity.
In July we tackle Smart Fuels, August "Smart" Water, September Smart Food during the Farm to Fork Festival month, and October we celebrate and dig into "Smart Reuse" and all the ways in which the Sacramento region is reaching "closed loop" economies and achievements.
Engage at the events, share your vision for every month's critical, sustainable "smart" topics, and help fuel our infographic visuals - the "vision" that becomes our roadmap.
Your voice matters. Your actions count. Join the Conversation. See You at the next "Smart" Sustainable Sacramento Sustainable festival or workshop.
