FCM Sustainable Communities Awards
FCM President Brad Woodside congratulates 2015 Sustainable Communities Award winners and opens the call for applications for the 2016 awards.
Celebrating sustainable community development
Best practices in sustainable community development are highlighted each year through the FCM Sustainable Communities Awards program, established in 2000. Truly sustainable projects take a holistic, integrated approach, where economic, social and environmental factors are inextricably linked. Sustainable communities can take many forms: large or small, urban or rural, central or remote. Their paths to sustainability are equally varied.
Awards are presented in six categories — planning, energy, transportation, waste, water and brownfields — and are open to all municipal governments and their private-sector partners. Winning communities and projects are recognized through case studies, videos and news releases, generating national and local media attention.
