Sustainability Community Icon

Phoenix recognizes the value of a diverse, vibrant, educated and connected populace. Empowering community cohesion is essential to building sustainable communities. Phoenix continually creates that cohesion by giving residents a sense of place and collective pride in their homes while celebrating social and cultural diversity. Sustainability Literacy programs are important and the city is creating programs to educate employees and the community.

Programs or services provided in Arts & Culture, Civil & Human Rights, Social and Cultural Diversity, Community Health, Education & Literacy, Emergency Prevention & Response, Equitable Services, Food Access, and Youth Programs are a few examples of what is included in the “Community” sphere of sustainability.
