The District of Columbia is committed to an open and inclusive planning process for the update of the Sustainable DC Plan – SDC 2.0. Direct input and participation of community, industry and thought leaders as well as other stakeholders is a critical component for updating the Plan. Working groups will be made up of volunteer private sector and community leaders, subject matter experts, and District Government staff. All working group meetings will be public and will welcome public participation and input.
The working groups’ purpose is to help ensure a process that is technically sound, enjoys broad public and expert support, and results in a forward-looking update of the sustainability strategy for the District that will continue to guide community and local government efforts towards our goals. The working groups will help identify emerging best practices (both locally and globally); prioritize recommended actions to address current and future environmental, social and economic needs; identify financial needs and resources; and propose plans and partnerships to ensure effective implementation and monitoring over time.
