USDN is a private professional network of municipal government sustainability professionals.
Cities have emerged as leaders in connecting environmental quality, economic prosperity, and community vitality and inclusivity. Municipal government sustainability leaders often are charged with finding these integrated approaches to designing and constructing buildings and neighborhoods, transporting people and goods, managing resource use, and fueling growth and development.
Municipal government sustainability professionals from across North America came together in April 2009 to form USDN, a peer to peer professional network, to help each other find these win-win solutions. USDN enables members to easily exchange information and collaborate to advance their practice. The result is that members are able to more quickly develop and share solutions that improve the natural and built environment, infrastructure, economy, health, and resilience of local communities.
USDN is a project of the Global Philanthropy Partnership.
